I came across this titled post from four years ago, which seems even more appropriate today. I trimmed it, for readability, but hopefully kept its integrity. I placed the Post ID number below should you wish to investigate It in more detail.
“How AT&T reduced the workforce without public lay-off notices and the implication for other former and current employees tell the same story about how AT&T avoided having to issue lay-off notices as required by the 1988 WARN Act. From one source:
“AT&T has done a number of #outsourcing actions since 2006-ish to different companies include #Accenture, #IBM and #Amdocs. Thousands of employee division in IT, which was outsourced, and continue to date for the most part.”
“No doubt AT&T plans to completely vacate many buildings across US, after their lease(s) expires and the number of employees will continue to dwindle.”

As I said, I trimmed the length of this post but this person was talking about outsourcing to other US companies like IBM, skirting the WARN Act (except California where regulations are tighter) and letting building leases expire in T’s attempt to downsize quietly.
We have discussed these topics many time, mostly as separate issues....this poster tied them all together in just a few paragraphs four years ago just around the time we were being told about the 2020 agenda!
