Apple's $100 Million Factory to Create About 100 Jobs?
Apple has announced that it's spending $100 million to bring some production back to the U.S. A factory of this size is estimated to employ around 200 workers, reports Bloomberg.
The investment “sounds like a 200-job operation with about a million-unit output,” said Dan Luria, a labor economist at Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center in Plymouth, Michigan, who studies factory operations. Apple will probably rely on tax breaks and other incentives for the facility, he said.
Notably, Apple may still be working with Foxconn for U.S. production. Foxconn says, "We are looking at doing more manufacturing in the U.S. because, in general, customers want more to be done there.”
