T-Mobile: Don't Cut US Jobs

    1. Sponsored by

      Communications Workers of America

On March 22, T-Mobile announced the closing of seven call centers around the country, a decision that will eliminate the livelihood of 3,300 families -- even as the company outsources work to Asia and Central America.

T-Mobile's decision is a double whammy. In four of the seven communities where centers are slated to close, the company has received millions in economic development subsidies. Now the jobs are leaving and taxpayers have nothing to show for their investment.

As one employee from a soon-to-be-closed call center in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said: “Who in the world is okay with this?” 

We’re not okay with this, and we bet you aren’t either. 

As you know, there are real people behind these job cuts – workers who support families, who spend money in their communities supporting other jobs. Until companies like T-Mobile stop choosing to cut jobs and offshore work, a solid economic recovery will never take hold in this country. T-Mobile has already offshored 6,000 jobs. Does it really need to gut the company further? 

Smart companies work together with their employees to produce higher quality service. They don’t just cut the workforce in a blind attempt to lower costs. 

Demand that T-Mobile’s CEO Philipp Humm reverse the decision to cut the jobs of hard-working T-Mobile workers -- sign our petition today!

      The more jobs we ship out, the worse our economy will become. I am sick of AMERICAN companies who use traitorous tactics, like outsourcing. I say outlaw this practice and bring ALL of our jobs home. We must take care of our country first!

      Something is wrong with this picture... cut the americans out of jobs but continue to outsource those jobs to Asia and Central America. Wrong is Wrong and TMobile you are WRONG!

      Granted that there are people who will lose their jobs, but this is NOT personal. Manning structures are a function of economic fitness of a company. Many businesses downsize and reduce their workforce to save money especially when they have had a bad quarter and they don't have the money to keep jobs. Where is that money to keep the job supposed to come from? Unions are EVIL and should be destroyed because they are nothing but collective bargaining tools that somehow believe they are entitled to negotiate amenities and privileges extended by a company to a workforce. There are no special privileges because the workers are PAID to do their jobs, often with benefits - this is called compensation. There is no contract. Unions are actually bad for business and turn into greedy institutions of their own lucrative, salacious nature. Businesses don't owe employees anything more than agreed upon compensation (paycheck and benefits) for work performed.

      While I am saddened that people will lose their jobs (I have been caught up in a layoff before and it is not fun, but I understood when I watched the Textile Industry practically disappear from the US). There ARE other jobs out there... being an emotional wreck will certainly not help. Get up and hit the street with a new resume and form a plan to land another job.

      There sure are a LOT of emotional people on this site...

      Signing because Americans deserve these jobs and a very dear friend will be losing their job when you close a center. I will never have T Mobile if this happens.
