AT&T recently lost $4 billion in a failed attempt to merge with T-Mobile. The company wants to push those costs onto workers by reducing benefits and threatening layoffs--even though AT&T is still enormously profitable.
"It's [AT&T CEO] Randall Stevenson's $4 billion mistake, not ours," said Clifford Kay, echoing the signs held by the protesters. Kay said that health insurance for his family might go from $160 a month to over $400 if the company gets its way in negotiations. "They're trying to get out of it," he said.
