A lot of Apple Store employees in the United States are getting a bigger paycheck.
As reported by Bloomberg, the company is increasing pay for "many" of its retail employees in the country as a response to a "tightening labor market, inflation woes and complaints from some staffers about working conditions during the Covid-19 pandemic." According to the report, raises range from anywhere between 2% to 10% depending on the employee's location and role.
Bloomberg says that the pay raises will not replace employees' annual review compensation conversations and instead serve as a one-time adjustment to better align employee compensation with market demands.
Apple has been throwing more money at employees throughout the pandemic. Back in September, the company paid out a one-time $1000 bonus to retail employees as a thank you for their work over the pandemic. In an effort to retain high-level corporate employees, the company paid out as much as $185,000 to some high-level executives.
