Verizon and Walmart battled it out for the top spot of Scrooge of the Year!

Verizon was declared the winner of the Scrooge of the Year contest at the DC Jobs with Justice Winter Cabaret on December 10th. The Scrooge of the Year is a company or person who has done dastardly deeds to workers in Washington, D.C.. resized_pic_0.jpg Some of the other nominees were Solanges Vivens, Liberty Maritime, Capital Grille, Daycon Products,John Hill,Governor Scott Walker, and Walmart. It was a very close race between Verizon and top competitor Walmart, but Verizon won the title with 2013 votes. Because Verizon is the Scrooge and it is the Holiday season, DC JWJ will be singing labor carols in front of Verizon Wireless stores.
