Apple is giving some retail workers raises of as much as 25 percent following a review of store operations earlier in the year, according to people familiar with the matter.
Apple employees at stores across the U.S. have been notified about the coming pay increases, according to workers who asked not be named for fear of losing their jobs. The pay are based on performance reviews and should take effect next month. Apple has about 36,000 retail employees at more than 350 stores worldwide, about two thirds of which are in the U.S. Some workers have complained that hourly wages aren’t enough to comfortably live in the metropolitan areas where many stores are located.
