Industry Reacts to DoJ's AT&T/T-Mobile Lawsuit
I sense desperation.
AT&T Should bring back those 5000 jobs anyways...
Just yesterday, AT&T announced that it would return a net 5,000 jobs to the U.S. on completion of the merger. That is the kind of corporate responsibility that more employers in the U.S. should demonstrate if we are ever to have an economy recovery.
Why not just bring them back merger or no merger... if they are truly concerned about America and the economy, bring back those jobs no matter what. It isn't as if these 5000 jobs will put AT&T into the red. Oh, that's right... they don't really care.
What they're trying to pull here is similar to a retail store raising it's prices, then offering a "sale" as an enticement. Umm, I don't buy into that B.S.
CWA + TechFreedom + AT&T = Payola
"...the DOJ has put consumers' interests first."
I'm pretty sure they mean "the DOJ has put OUR interests first" there. I think that listening to these companies go on and on petitioning the government to stop their competition for them is getting more than irritating.
...including consumer choice and innovation."
Now, how does that make sense? What is innovation if it is not creating something new. competing differently or figuring out a way to overcome obstacles?
The definition of innovation: "A new method, idea, product, etc..."
How is this blocking innovation? By definition innovation requires something NEW, something fresh. Blocking this merger stifles innovation in eve...
ATT only bringing back jobs from oversee or creating new jobs ONLY if merger go through.
no merger, they not going to creating new jobs!
Their AT&T paycheck must have gotten lost in the mail.
Either way, they'll probably still find a way to make this deal go through.
