This includes wage increases of 2 to 10 percent depending on the location of the store. The position of the employee also plays a role in the pay rise. For some, that means an hourly pay rise from a few dollars to a few tens.
Not all Apple Store employees will receive a pay rise and not all stores have been notified of the increase yet. Evidence suggests that part of the pay rise was partly due to staff, such as salespeople, technical support staff and older workers who worked in stores prior to the outbreak. Employees of the iPhone manufacturer have also repeatedly complained about working conditions during infections.
An Apple spokesman declined to comment on the pay rise, which is due to take effect this month. These increases will be separate from regular annual salary increases. These usually come into effect in October, which coincides with the end of Apple’s fiscal year.
In an effort to keep employees happy, Apple had already planned to continue paying during the holidays for the first time. Employees may take more sick days. The company also gave bonuses to employees of certain groups who were previously hired. Apple stores employ tens of thousands of people in hundreds of locations around the world.
