Poof! 1900 T-Mobile Workers Let Go

While AT&T ($T) says "Told you so" over T-Mobile's 1900 layoffs, isn't the reality that if the acquisition went through many positions would have also been cut? Here's what AT&T said:


"Only a few months ago AT&T promised to preserve these very same call centers and jobs if our merger was approved," Cicconi chided. "We also predicted that if the merger failed, T-Mobile would be forced into major layoffs."


So, maybe not. But when companies acquire or merge, you would think there are some cost saving synergies somewhere.


Sad for the 1900.
