Share the post "Apple Promises To Create US Manufacturing Jobs"
Manufacturing jobs probably aren’t coming back to the U.S., but that’s not stopping Apple from investing in U.S. job creation.
CEO Tim Cook announced a new $1 billion fund that would support advanced manufacturing jobs in the United States. Cook shared the news before Apple released new information about the make-up of its workforce.
Apple also said Wednesday that it had created 2 million U.S. jobs, 1.53 million of which are jobs attributable to the App Store ecosystem, not jobs directly under Apple.
In the past, President Donald Trump has criticized Apple for manufacturing its iPhones overseas, rather than in the United States, so who knows, maybe he’ll take credit for Apple’s latest jobs investment?
