Broken Promises Tour

https://www.politico.com/newsletters/morning-shift/2018/08/07/trump-bets-on-kobach-308083 CWA SLAMS AT&T OVER JOB CUTS: AT&T workers on Monday launched a "broken promises" tour to shame the company over job cuts when they said it promised job creation. The workers, represented by the Communications Workers of America, will focus on AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson?s 2017 statement that the company would create 7,000 good jobs for the middle class and devote $1 billion to capital expenditures with savings from Republicans? tax reform law. CWA contends the company has cut 7,000 jobs since the tax cuts went into effect.

An AT&T spokesman denied Stephenson promised to create jobs. For months, the CWA has been making inaccurate and misleading statements regarding a non-existent promise around tax reform and jobs, said spokesman Marty Richter. What was said is that AT&T plans to invest an additional $1 billion in the U.S. this year as a result of tax reform, and that research shows that every $1 billion in capital invested in the telecom industry creates about 7,000 good-paying jobs for American workers, across the broader economy.

Stephenson said in May 2017 that AT&T would use savings from a corporate tax cut to boost investment and add jobs. "I know exactly what AT&T would do, Stephenson said on CNBC. We would invest more. The arithmetic for us is simple. Every billion dollars of additional investment that we make is 7,000 additional jobs we have to put on to put that capital into the ground or on cell towers and so forth.

These are high-paying really good jobs with great benefits."
