Death of a Corporate Criminal

Ding, dong, the union busting corporation is dead.

With Verizon taking over MCI, the telecommunications world has been clensed of one of the worst, most destructive companies in American history.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, MCI lied and maneuvered through the regulatory agencies and courts to undermine phone regulations that has benefited poor local phone residents. It also became one of the worst union busters in the industry, fighting to use lower wages and working conditions to win out competitively. With its acquisition by WorldCom, MCI went on to become part of one of the largest corporate frauds in history.

So this is a good day to celebrate.
