Sweet of AT&T to leap to the forefront of the Corporate Responders to the GOP's Tax "Reform" Package...
Here's a $1,000 bonus to celebrate! Oh, and by the way, you're fired!

It took the Reagan "Tax Cuts" six years to crash the entire U. S. Economy into a Recession/Depression that outdid 1929, looks like this latest round of Republican "Trickle Down Horse Piss" sellout to the Wealthy is going to hurt all of us a lot quicker.

Let's go back to 1973, when the US Economy was booming, Corporate Tax Rates topped at 45%, and Individual Tax rates topped at 91%.
The US Standard of Living has been declining steadily since then, so we must have been doing something right back then that we need to start doing again!

"Hundreds of metro AT&T employees laid off just before Christmas"

How else are they going to hand out all those $1000.00 employee bonuses they were blowing smoke about after the tax bill passed?

Come on. Layoffs/terminations at att always happen in the last quarter of the year. The bonuses won't amount much after union officials get their share 1st, then taxes next. What about the the hearings/lawsuits going on with att/time warner? If that goes through, consolidations are the rule of corporations.
