ST. LOUIS, MO. (KPLR) - Occupy protesters have their marching orders and lately, it's to disrupt the entrance to shareholders meetings. Thursday morning they were outside of Verizon's shareholders meeting in downtown St. Louis. Their goal was to show the impact of budget cuts and corporate tax-breaks on public services.
They're targeting Verizon, because it did not pay any income tax between 2008 and 2010.
They're also upset over a massive pay raise given to Verizon's CEO, after he slashed workers' benefits to maintain profit during a down economy.
