20,000 Apple Employees Can’t Be Making This Up
I’m typing this post on an Apple iMac and I’m getting a bad, bad taste in my mouth. 20,000 employees — 20,000! — say Apple isn’t the hippie, cool, started-in-a-garage Zen outfit it wants us to think it is:
Apple is facing a class-action lawsuit from former employees who say the company owes them unpaid wages, according to a Re/code report.
Around 20,000 former employees from Apple’s retail and corporate divisions allege they missed breaks and meals, and did not receive their final paychecks in a timely manner.
They have filed suit in California’s Superior Court.
If 20,000 employees are complaining about being ripped off, something’s wrong. Yeah, some of them might be exaggerating but what if a third of them aren’t. That’s a lot of people.
