Double Your Money, Thanks to Apple

Double Your Money, Thanks to Apple

Many people wondered what would be Apple‘s first big move after Steve Job’s resigned as CEO. His successor, Tim Cook, has initiated a new giving program for US employees.

Starting this week, Apple will match charitable donations of employees dollar for dollar up to $10,000 per year. According to the internal memo, Cook said, “We are all really inspired by the generosity of our co-workers who give back to the community and this program is going to help that individual giving go even farther.”

The memo also stated that the program will eventually expand to employees outside the United States.

is this how Apple tries to cover up what really goes on in how peiople in ohter countries are really treated to make the apple products? how in congo children are forced into slavery to mine the toxic colton used in iphones or that laborers in shenxzhen, china (where apple has foxxhan, the largest private company make their products) are treated like slaves forced to stand 10 hours a day with no break, forced to live in tiny cubicles with hardly any electricity or heat and forced to pay exhorbitant fees for these cubicles, resulting in over 21 committing suicide. Finally over 54billion dollars is in a Swiss bank so that US cannot collect the taxes that apple owes this country and we're in an economic crisis. Plus with all the money that apple has made, why are they not creating more jobs here in the US where we need jobs but cares more about profit at the expense of human dignity and welfare.

Check it out, try to buy an app called Phone Story on any apple device and you will not be able to as this app specifically talks about this, You can buy it on android. I dare you all to see apple for what it really is. I use think the world of apple. but now, I think that Gates has more heart since he has consistently paid Us taxes, given millions away to help children in education and diseases around the world for years and years.

Something that now, apple is giving a piddly part of its fortune to its employees? What about the child laborers and the slaves in china? I

that's pretty amazing if Apple will match up to $10,000 in charitable donations per employee.

I wish my employer was that generous!!!

Is that a $10,000 per person match?

It's nice to see that Apple's new CEO is trying to have the company start using some of its resources to give back for the common good.
