Apple claims that it now provides jobs to four times as many people as it did eight years ago. At the same time, the company plans to make a direct contribution to the economy of the United States in the amount of 350 billion US dollars.
It is worth noting that the figure of 2.4 million people includes not only Apple employees, but also employees of all American companies that cooperate with Apple, for example, they create components for Apple devices. These include companies like Maccor, a battery testing company, and Colorado-based producer of Broadcom modems. Apple is also partnering with Texas-based Finisar, which will soon begin shipping VCSEL sensors for Face ID. Only the App Store provides jobs for 1.9 million people, which is 325 thousand more than 2.5 years ago.
Apple itself currently employs 90 thousand employees in 50 states. By 2023, she plans to create another 20,000 jobs by opening new headquarters in Seattle and San Diego.
