  • Apple At The Core of U.S. Job Creation


    On Friday, Apple launched a new page on Apple.com showcasing the important contributions made by the iDevice-maker to the U.S. economy, chiefly through job creation in recent years.

    According to the data published by Apple, the company continues to create jobs "through innovation" at a record pace. Putting numbers behind that claim, Apple says it has “created or supported” 514,000 U.S. jobs.

    These jobs — spread across all 50 states — include thousands of jobs in numerous industries, from the people who create components for our products to the people who build the planes and trucks that carry them to our customers.
    Among the jobs "supported" by Apple innovations would be workers in Texas who manufacture processors for iOS products, Corning employees in Kentucky and New York who create the majority of the glass for iPhone, and FedEx and UPS employees, Apple says. The app revolution alone has added more than 210,000 iOS jobs to the U.S. economy since the iPhone arrived in 2007.

    Although Apple's innovations have certainly created a wave of job growth, the company itself has also been hiring at a fairly impressive rate. Ten tears ago, for example, Apple had approximately 10,000 employees. Today, that number is 47,000.

      They should include Cydia devs, jailbreak devs, and other jailbreak related fields....such as the writers and staff at MMi! Think of all the other jailbreak websites out there. Surely all these people play a "equally" important role as the FedEx guy.

      I bet that job number would double if all of these people were included, not to mention the many other jobs created by jailbreaking that i didnt have time to mention.You all owe your jobs to Apple!

      Haha what? Who are they (Apple) buying?? Themselves? All of these reports?? This wasn't a story written in the Wall Street Journal, or the FarmVille Gazette for that matter...Apple published this under their own name on their own website! Sure they used sources for the numbers, but how would you create any statistics without numbers??

      And dont worry, you won't be attacked by all the "Apple lovers". It's clearly stated on the forum rules page that ridiculing the "retarded or mentally challenged" is strictly forbidden. I might get a warning for even telling you this, but I'll take the chance, cuz I'm evil.....I like Apple products.

      I thought the same thing...But when you think about it, they are shipping millions and millions and millions of idevices. Not just shipments to your front door, but also in bulk to all of the different retailers. With how valuable these devices are, the massive numbers being shipped, and how important it is for UPS/FedEx to get these devices to their destination safely, it isn't to hard to imagine that these companies would have to hire additional staff.
