Tech company Apple will pay more retail employees in the United States. During information meetings in stores and individual conversations with employees, it was announced last week that the staff will receive a higher salary, Bloomberg news agency reported on the basis of insiders. Apple, like other companies, is struggling with wage pressures due to staff shortages and inflation.

It concerns wage increases between 2 and 10 percent, depending on the location of the store. The position of the employee also plays a role in the salary increase. For some, that could mean an hourly wage increase from a few dollars to a few tens.

Not all Apple store employees will receive a raise and not all stores have been notified of the raises yet. The salary increases are aimed in part for staff who worked in stores before the pandemic, such as salespeople, as well as technical support staff and older workers, the sources say. Employees of the iPhone manufacturer have also repeatedly complained about working conditions during the pandemic.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment on the salary increases, which are due to take effect this month. The increases would be separate from the regular annual salary increases. These usually go into effect in October, coinciding with the end of Apple’s fiscal year.

In an effort to keep staff happy, Apple already had plans to continue paying during holidays for the first time. Staff could also take more sick days. The company previously paid bonuses to certain groups of employees based on when they were hired. Apple stores employ tens of thousands of people in hundreds of locations worldwide.
