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 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.
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!

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.El Zurdo

Love how they add transportation jobs..... As if they weren't transporting apple products they wouldn't have a job? I knew apple had a HUGE ego but come on!
