NOT JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE BEACH -
BSC, CA – Before we get back to 'the rest of the story' as the tagline goes and the guy in the hammock, the AT&T workers went back to work on Monday, organizer [name withheld by reporter] said. But the real issue is more complicated than the boots on the ground know. The money angle of Mama Bell making $1,000,000,000 profit a quarter , the CEO taking home $27M, and the parent company outsourcing outlets to stand-alone owners [to compete with Boost Mobile, CREDO, and Metro PCS] may be the reasons their 'shop steward' told them because that's what he was told, but like the hosing all the Bernie Sanders SEIU fans got with the BLM infiltration/hijacking, it ain't what it seems.
The real reason for Ma Bell's bullish attitude toward the young workers who build and maintain the mobile side of AT&T is because as you read this, a bill is speeding through the sellouts of Sacramento to affix a mini cell tower on every light pole, every neighborhood to eliminate 99% of the mobile workforce employed now. Imagine living inside a bug zapper, but they will say 'there's no problem.' [Were the days not shortened, no flesh would survive.] This is the other reason you haven't and won't be hearing this news in the Establishment media.
So far there is no word about the lawmakers in the other 35 states facing AT&T sharecropping. So what can you or I do about this bullshit? You can write letters, do 'honk 'n' waves with signs, or meet in churches, but the real power starts at the grassroots level: the local city council. First research the bill number, attend the next council meeting and use the public speaker 2-3 minutes to sound the alarm. There's always going to be a street corner to stand on.
Now back to the dude in the hammock, why everyone became so fond of him and how he fit in, also more pics of the strikers, all after the jump.
