The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states. Last year, we spent over $50 billion with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers and manufacturers. Since we launched the App Store in 2008, U.S. developers have earned over $16 billion in App Store sales worldwide. And we’re just getting started.
No doubt the company feels like it has to play defense as Washington chants “Buy American; Hire American.”
Politics aside, I sometimes lose sight of the sheer scale of modern Apple. This site helps correct that.
