    Apple store employee seeks to plant union seed | Reuters


    (Reuters) - An Apple Inc store employee has started a drive to unionize retail workers in a rare move at a company known for its near-fanatical following and cutting-edge mystique.

    Cory Moll, a part-time employee at an Apple store in San Francisco, is working to form a union to fight for better wages and benefits and to address what he says are unfair practices in the company's glass-and-steel retail showrooms.

    "The core issues definitely involve compensation, pay, benefits," Moll said, adding that he decided to go public with the union to encourage other employees to come forward.


    yes, because Apple store employees are so mistreated and so underpaid I mean pointing out headphones, bumpers, and sliding credit cards through thier iphones..... What a sweat shop.

    Unemployment in California is 11.7%. He can make demands if he wants, but it's much easier for Apple to replace him than to deal with union demands.

    So what union would they join?

    He's a part-time employee and he wants to "fight for better wages and benefits and to address unfair practices"? What a self-righteous, pompous ass. If he's not happy he can go work at Best Buy or something. A part-timer barely even has a horse in this race at all. I bet he's a dumbass who hates his job and is just trying to stick it to The Man.
