The founder of a union for Apple retail workers, Cory Moll, is to quit his job at Apple, it emerged today.
Moll worked in San Francisco, and established the union in 2011 in pursuit of better pay and job prospects for Apple employees. He is well known for criticizing Apple’s treatment of its workers, but today tweeted this:
Tomorrow will be my last day at Apple.
— Cory Moll (@CoryMoll) April 9, 2013
In the past, Moll criticized the low wages retail workers received, alongside concerns over promotion opportunities and guaranteed working hours.
It’s understood that Moll will receive a clapping out ceremony from his fellow colleagues as he leaves tomorrow, similar to those marked the opening sale of a new product. Moll has been active on Twitter in the last few days, saying:
Enriching lives is what we do, and I feel like mine has been enriched too”
Moll never raised the issue of health and safety at work, which is ironic, because he will leave the store on crutches after breaking his little toe on a staircase railing whilst on the job. Nonetheless, we recognise all that he has done for Apple employees in America, and wish him all the best in his future ventures.
