I am a former Verizon costomer and it's my opinion that Verizon should match not only its employee contributions but also it's individual costomer's contributions too. To match just its employee contributions and Verizon's one million contribution is so petifully low , from a billion dollar company , it's almost an insult. I am retired but remember how many costomers used in PR used Verizon cell phones when it cost $350.00 a month for a young person to use a Verizon cell phone in PR.
