This has to be the most foolish post I have seen in recent days. This is a good example of the progressive ideology that is chocking our nation.
Money is our labor, our property, and represents our individual liberty we enjoy in this country, but it is under assault by the leftist/progressives who have this utopian dream to equalize and strip away our individuality only to end up with a type of Marxist class system.
Sure there are political points to be won by AT&T doing this gesture, but can you blame them? Corporations (groups of individuals working together) have been under assault for sometime now by the special interest groups on the the left. If there is any blood money it would that money these phony groups shake out of Corporate America. Personally I want the business I work for to be as wealthy as possible.
If companies decide to pay a bonus in good will so be it -- it's their business. You know this would be true, if there was no bonus money coming from AT&T all you'd hear from these people is how greedy AT&T is. These people are never satisfied and never will be.
