So the story in the OP is fake news? Is this you ignoring information you don't like again? You're good at that.

It's always the GOP who always will find an excuse to give the greedy rich more booty...
Proving that not all carriers are seeing increased profitability, Verizon... reported Thursday that its wireless services margins contracted from 47.8% a year ago to 45.8% in the second quarter.
How did AT&T notch record wireless services Eibtda margins of 50.4% in the second quarter?
"Their acquisition of DirecTV has really helped their churn," Yong suggested. "There are some synergies they are benefiting from."
AT&T noted during its Tuesday earnings call that bundling DirecTV Now and HBO with its unlimited wireless plan has helped it hold onto customers, driving churn -- or the percentage of customers who cancelled service in the quarter -- to a record low of 0.79% among post-paid phone subscribers. "It's a very competitive environment, and why are people staying with us?" CFO John Stephens told investors. "I think in part it's because they like the ability to bundle."
The carrier's limited subscriber gains of 178,000 post-paid phone customers actually helped margins.

Is it possible that high taxes up North is pushing those AT&T jobs to Tennessee and Georgia? Perhaps it’s not corporate greed, but fiscal responsibility. Paying high taxes for no discernible services isn’t responsible.
No, that’s not it.
Big greedy companies for years have been moving to the south where those ignorant hillbillies hate unions.
They tried to get me to go to Tennessee’s 20 years ago at GM. I told them to take a hike.
They are still doing it to get away from unions and people with common sense
They want to go where the biggest slave mentality in America exists…the south.

Meanwhile, in really real world...
Maybe y'all should rethink your ideology and vote in someone that wants to help the worker and not the illegal alien.

It has nothing to do with Trump.
CT is a high tax state and companies have been fleeing to give down south. They've been losing all their financial industry to FL. All the hedge funds and private equity companies have been leaving. The same with large corparate campuses.
CT used to be low tax until about 20 years ago and the chickens are finally coming home to roost.
Just google CT and NJ taxes and companies leaving.
Democrats going to democrat....

It’s hilarious when tax cuts gets slammed by some citizens because other citizens won’t hand over the benefits of their lower taxes. Not only is it funny, but it’s perverted, and paints the perfect picture of the dependant class.
