The carrier promises to bring 5,000 call-center jobs back to the U.S. after the acquisition
IDG News Service - AT&T will return 5,000 outsourced call-center jobs to the U.S. if regulators approve its proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA, the company said Wednesday.
AT&T, awaiting a decision by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, also promised that the merger will not cause job losses at U.S. call centers for both companies. AT&T has not yet determined what countries the 5,000 jobs will come from, the company said in a press release.
"At a time when many Americans are struggling and our economy faces significant challenges, we're pleased that the T-Mobile merger allows us to bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States and significantly increase our investment here," Randall Stephenson, AT&T's chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
Critics of the deal, announced in March, have suggested that the acquisition will lead to the loss of thousands of jobs as the two companies combine operations.

HCX Editor's note - AT&T had been in the process of bringing back their call centers to the USA for a couple of years today. So, how much of this is a bluff to get the U.S to block their case? What are your thoughts?
