San Francisco – A part-time employee at an Apple store in San Francisco is working to form a union due to what he feels are “unfair practices in the company’s glass-and-steel retail showrooms,” Cory Moll told Reuters.
Making $14 an hour for the past four years of his employment, Moll’s move to form the campaign is unusual considering Apple’s strong reputation for employee satisfaction and loyalty — having more than
30,000 retail employees in their 325 stores worldwide.
“It’s kind of a feeling of David versus Goliath,” of trying to start a union movement in a $320 billion company, Moll told Reuters.
The minimum wage in San Francisco — one of the most expensive cities in America — is $9.92. Although Apple confirmed Moll as an employee, the company declined to comment on his unionizing efforts for Reuters.
