A group of grandparents who call themselves the "Band of Rebels", protested outside the Verizon store on Jefferson Road in Henrietta.

The Band is protesting what they call Verizon's attempt to cut employees, benefits and pensions.

Verizon employees in other parts of the country are on strike. There are no striking Verizon workers in the Rochester area.

John O'Malley, a spokesman for Verizon Wireless in Rochester, tells News 10NBC Verizon Wireless is not part of the contract negotiations or the strike. He says people are picketing the stores because they are visible.

Now I must ask the question... if Verizon is doing this, what would make them any different than every other major business who has come into Rochester, then screwed-over the people of Rochester, via packing up and leaving? What more can the Chinese take from us?

Very very true

These politicians keep screwing around and they will just hand our Country to the Chinese. Can't beat us in a war, but they can buy up all the property, get us into deep debt with them, and ruin our economy. Then just walk in and take over.
