Merry Christmas, You’re Fired: AT&T Lays Off 1400 After Trump Tax Breaks

Broadband installers formerly employed by AT&T reported that they received termination notices just days before Christmas, despite earlier promises by the telecommunications giant that current corporate policy was centered around "creating jobs," according to the New York Post.

Reports indicate that the AT&T firings are primarily the result of new US legislation that significantly limits laws surrounding the neutrality of the internet, as well as newly-signed legislation by the Trump administration ushering in a lower corporate tax rate.

The layoffs are also seen to be a result of a shift in services by AT&T, away from traditional TV to focus on increasingly popular streaming video delivery tools and formats.
