LOL, I worked with Verizon line crews as a flagger (contractor) over summers while I was getting my electrical engineering degree, and I have never seen a lazier group of employees in my life. A couple of the old-school crews were decent, hard workers, but the overwhelming majority were worthless.

They would start at 7, pack up the truck for the day by 730, leave the garage and take breakfast until 9, take another hour to get to the job site, start working at 1030, go to lunch at 1130, come back at 1, work until 2, then pack up and head back to the garage. This is not an exaggeration.

I'll take the scab any day. For people who make $90k a year with ridiculous benefits, and don't even need a college degree, I was amazed at the laziness and apathy.
