From the NYT:
About 30,000 of the 43,000 Apple employees in this country work in Apple Stores, as members of the service economy, and many of them earn about $25,000 a year. They work inside the world’s fastest growing industry, for the most valuable company, run by one of the country’s most richly compensated chief executives, Tim Cook. Last year, he received stock grants, which vest over a 10-year period, that at today’s share price would be worth more than $570 million.
How can this arrogant prick sleep at night knowing that the vast majority of American Apple employees will never reach middle class status? And forget about the slaves in China who actually make Apple products. 100 years ago, before the citizenry fought for their rights, we called these people robber barons. . The creepy Apple CEO could give all 30,000 of his sales staff a $10,000 raise out of his pocket and he’d still walk home with $270 million, but that would be communism or socialism or atheism.
