Anti-Wall Street protesters march with Verizon workers

NEW YORK - Anti-Wall Street protesters joined Verizon Communications workers on Friday in a march to denounce corporate greed as the company and 45,000 employees negotiate a new labor contract.

The march by about 500 people to a Verizon store in Lower Manhattan coincided with the top US mobile provider reporting a third-quarter profit of $1.38 billion, more than double its profit for the same quarter last year.

Support from unions across the United States has helped boost the ranks of the Occupy Wall Street movement against economic inequality, which began five weeks ago and sparked protests nationwide and globally.

"We're all in this together," Verizon worker Steven Jackman, 53, from Long Island, said of joining forces with Occupy Wall Street.
