AT&T sticks it to American tech workers, forces them to train foreign replacements

Jan. 2, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to AT&T abuse of the H-1B program:

“AT&T enriches itself on public spectrum, and yet they’re going after American tech workers by forcing them to train their H-1B replacements. This is unacceptable. The H-1B program is completely broken and must be disbanded, as it is not addressing shortages in job markets, it is supplanting qualified Americans. It is particularly ironic that AT&T is engaged in this blatant abuse of American workers while they are dependent on publicly owned spectrum in order to build their 5G network. If any company should be a good corporate citizen it is AT&T and yet this is just one example of the failure of that entity to act responsibly. The FCC should investigate whether AT&T is meeting their responsibilities under the recent AT&T-Time Warner merger and should be blocked from additional spectrum purchases based on their egregious abuse of immigration laws.”
