Corporate America is so over the top now. They have been given way too much power.

Iím a 56-year-old Air Force veteran who has lived and worked in the Sacramento area for close to 30 years.

I was a premises technician at AT&T who installed cable and internet services in our customersí homes. Iím proud that I helped make AT&T a leading, reliable telecommunications provider in the Sacramento area.
With my union job I could live comfortably in Sacramento, but I donít make enough to live in the Bay Area. My whole life and world are here in Sacramento. My wife has worked for the San Juan Unified School District for over 20 years and is three years away from retiring.

AT&T knows it wasnít giving us any real choice at all: the company laid us off.

I am devastated, not only because of the threats AT&T made to my livelihood but also because the company lied to me and all its employees. There are tens of thousands of us in California.

AT&T Chief Executive Officer Randall Stephenson was one of the biggest cheerleaders for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
