Citing abusive working conditions, and perhaps labor law violations as well, a group of employees at an Apple retail store in Seattle, Washington are planning an October 3rd walkout. ifoAppleStore writes:
According to insiders, the employees’ complaints haven’t been fully investigated by the company’s human resources department. After reaching an impasse with Sr. VP Retail Ron Johnson over the issue, a group of Specialists, Geniuses and Creatives say they will walk out to bring attention to their complaints, and that several former employees will join the protest.
Sort of ironic that this is based out of Seattle, Microsoft’s home base, and especially considering that Microsoft is reportedly luring away Apple retail staff with promises of higher pay.
