Atlanta Jobs with Justice, Communication Workers of America and Occupy Atlanta, stand up against the loss of 740 jobs in the Southeast, and stand up for middle-class workers throughout the region.  At a time when one of every five workers is unemployed or underemployed, we expect American businesses to do their part to keep our economy on track rather than continuing to benefit from tax breaks and corporate welfare while ordinary Americans face hardship with no end in sight. As we occupy outside, members of CWA, Jobs With Justice and Occupy Atlanta will occupy the offices of AT&T until they agree to rescind the layoffs and preserve jobs for Americans.  Corporate greed is unpatriotic.

We will continue to escalate if the layoffs are not immediately rescinded.
