AT&T has announced that they are laying off 740 workers in the SE region, directly impacting 95 Georgia families. This is despite the fact that they made record profits in 2011 and their CEO recieved over $27,000,000 in compensation. At a time when unemployment is at a re...cord high in the state of Georgia, we can't afford to lose one more job. We demand that AT&T stop these layoffs!!
Communication Workers of America(CWA) has called on Occupy Atlanta to stand with them and fight AT&T. We know that less jobs means more foreclosures, evictions, and homelessness. Bottom line, we can't allow corporations to discard workers so easily, especially when they're making record profits.
This promises to be a different kind of mass action, creative, sprited, and nonviolent. We need all out on Valentines day! Show some love for workers!!
WHERE: AT&T Building
675 West Peachtree St, Atlanta, GA 30308
