    heck too, they are glorified best buy employees that have an even easier job because they only sell a handful of products. This is a perfect example of why apple doesn't even consider moving their manufacturing jobs to the US though.

    Of course you can make 100k in any field as long as your are skilled and qualified. Teacher: you could be a university professor
    Retail: you could be a corporate retail agent/executive

    You can always make the big $$ in some field of work but that's only if the job is as hard or you had to work hard enough to get there

    No, they sell 100,000 worth of **** per year, that you desperately want. They also have to stand there and smile and say sorry to you when your iPhone is broken because you dropped it in the toilet and lied, trying to claim that there's no legitimate way that the water damage sensor has been tripped.

    100k a year construction jobs?! MAYBE a foreman makes that in a union state, MAYBE. But twice that? Nope. Sorry bud. I worked in construction for 7 years before going to the oilfield. I STARTED in the oil field at $60k which was a HUGE raise from construction.

    Apple's retail store is still a retail store and their sales associates get paid pretty well for that title even though a lot of them are less knowledgeable than I am with their product knowledge.
