T-Mobile's Job Creation Promises Are Sheer Fantasy


Testifying at a U.S. House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee hearing, Shelton warned Congress that the proposed T-Mobile/Sprint merger will harm thousands of workers and consumers.

CWA President Chris Shelton testified in front of Congress on Tuesday at a U.S. House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee hearing on the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. At the hearing, Shelton warned that the proposed merger will harm thousands of workers and consumers.

"This merger would kill American jobs," said Shelton. "We estimate that 30,000 Americans would lose their jobs if this merger is approved. The Wall Street firm, MoffetNathanson, estimates this merger would kill 20,000 jobs. Whether you take their number or ours, you should understand that T-Mobile's job creation promises are sheer fantasy."
