Occupy AT&T-This is Our Community.

We had the chance to hear from a member of our community and 20 year employee of AT&T with Bellsouth:

Q: "Recently AT&T announced that they're going to surplus a bunch of jobs (740) in Georgia and the Southeast, what's your opinion on that?"

A: "To me it's kinda emotional because I come out here every day to work... And it's almost like I'm working myself out of a job. The harder I work... the more money I make for the company, which gives the managers and executives a bonus" (and the executives want more and more output from less and less workers).

"So it's almost like they get a bonus for working me to death but then I'm working my co-workers out of a job. Then come March, my big reward for working extra hard is to get terminated. If that's not corporate greed, I don't know what is."
