Just The Facts On Jobs: The New T-Mobile Will Create Jobs From Day One
“State and regional policymakers should support this merger as the best possible outcome. It will advance the region’s technology leadership and should create more jobs and opportunity.”
– Seattle Times editorial board
“The MOU ‘demonstrates T-Mobile’s commitment to best practices in corporate social responsibility and earns them the opportunity to prove that their proposed merger with Sprint would bring value and benefit to consumers throughout California … NDC looks forward to a great partnership with T-Mobile that will set a new standard in collaboration between community-based organizations and corporate America.’”
– Faith Bautista, National Diversity Coalition CEO
“[USHCC] strongly believes that the T-Mobile-Sprint merger will create economic opportunities for Hispanic businesses, and will enable more Hispanic people than ever before to compete in the modern economy. The New T-Mobile’s speed, capacity and, above all, true nationwide 5G coverage, will support entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth within the Hispanic community, helping create and sustain prosperity for Hispanic business owners to the benefit of the American economy.”
– Ramiro Cavasoz, President & CEO, United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
“Approval of this merger will, among other things, lead to expanded rural access to high-speed Internet and expanded broadband, […] launch the broader deployment of 5G infrastructure and would stimulate job growth and community investment in Vermont and across the country.”
– Lisa M. Ventriss, President and CEO, Vermont Business Roundtable
Job Creation Nationwide
There will be more jobs at New T-Mobile than if the two companies remained separate. New T-Mobile will be a job creator. As one way to show how serious we are about this, we will offer every current retail employee from both companies a job at New T-Mobile. No exceptions.
We are going to invest about $40 billion over three years to integrate these companies, expand and capture the 5G opportunity. A huge portion of that investment is jobs. New T-Mobile will have 3,625 more direct, internal full-time employees in year one (2019) than the two companies would employ absent the merger. In 2024, New T-Mobile will have 11,060 more direct and indirect jobs than the standalone companies would have had. This merger is all about jobs.
T-Mobile has done this before and New T-Mobile can do it again. Since T-Mobile acquired MetroPCS, the number of Metro and Metro dealer employees who support the MetroPCS brand has more than TRIPLED. We created thousands of new jobs supporting MetroPCS in five years by doubling Metro’s customer base and expanding to serve new markets. New T-Mobile will follow this proven playbook to be jobs positive from Day One.
Jobs. Jobs. Jobs. Especially in Rural Areas.
We are already rolling out our plans to create jobs across America. Nowhere will the powerful effect of new jobs be felt more strongly than in rural communities across America.
New T-Mobile has recently announced plans to open five new, state-of-the-art Customer Experience Centers as part of the nationwide expansion of our revolutionary Team of Experts (TEX) customer care model. No one else in the industry even comes close. The first three locations – in the Greater Rochester area of Upstate N.Y.; Overland Park, Kansas; and California’s Central Valley – are very important to our jobs commitment. Through this expansion we will create 7,500 more customer care jobs by 2024 than T-Mobile or Sprint would have independently. We’ve also committed to build 600 new stores which, along with our customer service expansion, will create approximately 12,000 jobs mostly in small towns and local communities.
