AT&T promised 7,000 new jobs to get tax break—it cut 23,000 jobs instead

AT&T in November 2017 pushed for the corporate tax cut by promising to invest an additional $1 billion in 2018, with CEO Randall Stephenson saying
that "every billion dollars AT&T invests is 7,000 hard-hat jobs.
These are not entry-level jobs. These are 7,000 jobs of people putting
fiber in ground, hard-hat jobs that make $70,000 to $80,000 per year."
