Apple’s Retail Army, Long on Loyalty but Short on Pay

by David Segal
The New York Times
June 23, 2012


Within this world, the Apple Store is the undisputed king, a retail phenomenon renowned for impeccable design, deft service and spectacular revenues. Last year, the company’s 327 global stores took in more money per square foot than any other United States retailer — wireless or otherwise — and almost double that of Tiffany, which was No. 2 on the list, according to the research firm RetailSails.

Worldwide, its stores sold $16 billion in merchandise.

But most of Apple’s employees enjoyed little of that wealth. While consumers tend to think of Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., as the company’s heart and soul, a majority of its workers in the United States are not engineers or executives with hefty salaries and bonuses but rather hourly wage earners selling iPhones and MacBooks.

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.

And though Apple is unparalleled as a retailer, when it comes to its lowliest workers, the company is a reflection of the technology industry as a whole...

When aggression and violence are used to force participation, that's enslavement.

Don't you think people should have a choice whether or not they want to participate in any program/event?

Your actions/deeds/life should be your choice and voluntary.

Do you think people should be forced into participating and or funding (either directly or indirectly) fraud, violence, aggression or murder?

{#No}

 

Because they don't know who...or what they truly are. They have not the slightest inkling of what power lies unrealized. And that is precisely the reason for the subtle enslavement of humanity by a mere handful of ruling elitists to keep it so. Because that realization means freedom in the truest sense.

And then the world changes.

Interesting, but it sort of seems like someone's high school project.  Karl Marx wrote about many of those concepts over 100 years ago, only his historical perspectives were generally more accurate, and he didn't feign a British accent.  From what I've seen of your other posts, you do not seem like someone with Marxist leanings. Einstein and Satie must have both been slaves also according to that model, yet they achieved. 
I guess it comes down to a matter of perspective really  - it does seem like a majority of the population prefer to be "kept".  I agree with some of the points and observations, but it's a little too over-simplified for me and the tea party footage didn't help.  "Enslavement", in that hyperbolic sense, is really a state of mind.  I did like the Satie piece in the background though.
