Apple Inc. Store Forced To Close By Protesters Over Low Pay

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s San Francisco store was closed after 50 service employees protested for not getting paid well enough, says a report from Business Insider. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) organizer Jacob Hay said that all of the employees who were protesting with the SEIU staged a a sit-in for approximately one hour.

Many Apple employees arrested

According to the SEIU, companies such as Apple enter into an agreement with firms that pay less than what is deserving to service employees like security guards. Also these firms employ on a part-time basis to keep from paying benefits. One of the protesters said that they “will not be intimidated,” while another one said that officers do not get any job protection. The security guard at the Apple store said that their job the next day is not guaranteed if they miss one day.
