Thousands of AT&T and DirecTV workers are going on strike this weekend
On Friday afternoon, thousands of AT&T employees walked off the job in protest of the company's inability to come to an agreement on union contracts with its workforce. Wireless workers from 36 states (and DC) will take part in the strike, along with wireline workers from California, Nevada and Connecticut and DirecTV technicians in California and Nevada. If an agreement can't be reached quickly, retail stores in several states will likely shut down this weekend as well.
