Occupy Wall Street joined Verizon Communications workers in a march to denounce corporate greed as the company and 45,000 employees negotiate a new labor contract.
The march, to a Verizon store in Lower Manhattan, coincided with the top U.S. 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.
