Multinational telecommunications conglomerate AT&T is expected to lay off more than 1,000 American workers, including those in the Midwest and South, while the company continues importing foreign workers.

This week, AT&T announced that it would be laying off roughly 600 Americans across the Midwest, according to AppleInsider. Additionally, the company will lay off about 700 American workers with the AT&T subsidiary DirectTV and another 700 workers in the Texas and Missouri regions.

This month, AT&T also laid off about 215 American workers in nine southern states. Overall, according to AppleInsider, the layoffs are impacting Americans in California, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

Americans expecting to be handed a pink slip at the company told AppleInsider that they were given three weeks to find a lower-paying job inside the company or be permanently laid off.
