  • Atlanta, GA Apple retail workers plan to file for union election

    Good on them. In Most western countries workers have paid 4 weeks vacation as a minimum, 2 weeks paid sick leave, paid maternity/paternity  leave. Apple can afford to share more of their profits  with the workers who help creat it. 


    Apple like to be left wing on social issues but on economic issues not so much. 

    Given inflation if your wages are not going up by 7%+ per year you are effectively taking a pay cut.

    Excellent. Tech companies have way too much power and abuse their monopolies for the detriment of the consumer
    Nothing meaningful will get through a democratic Congress controlled by Tech Companies.   Zuck is probably lining up his Forward.US  allies to block this.
    @k2kw.  Whilst I share your views about the financial influence of big business on politicians I am not so sure you are correct in this case. The tech industry has really annoyed many Republicans who may be looking for some pay back after such events as Trump getting banned from twitter etc. In the culture wars  tech companies are on the left but financially they are really old fashioned corporate operators focused on profit.  Amazon etc are not liked by the economic left of the Democrats.  We may see some odd alliances formed on this issue - interesting times.

  • Seven Apple suppliers linked to Chinese forced labor programs

    It must be very difficult for Apple and other companies  to investigate claims like this in a totalitarian country like China. May be it is time to pull out of China even if it costly in the short term.
