With about a week left in this campaign, it’s important that we don’t let messaging calendars and endorsement announcements get us too distracted from lending our energies and activism to other important issues.

Today, we’re standing with our siblings from the Communication Workers of America as they face down layoffs.

With all the big promises to create new jobs and investments in our communities if Congress passed a massive tax cut, executives like AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson aren’t just going back on their word to hire workers – they’re laying them off!

Instead of creating jobs, AT&T has cut over 20,000 employees since the Tax Cut and Jobs Act passed. And now the company just announced that they are laying off another 368 CWA techs right here in California.

The company has sent thousands of jobs to low-wage contractors overseas. It could bring that work back in-house instead of cutting union jobs. AT&T’s tax cut was a staggering $21 billion. What are they doing with all that money?

CWA is asking Congress to launch an investigation to find out what happened to the billions of dollars of OUR money that they gave away to AT&T and other corporations that are cutting jobs.

Please join me in holding AT&T accountable by clicking the link below.  It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out your information and make your voice heard!

Let’s stand with CWA and all workers.

Democratically yours,
