Taxing Testimony: 10 Highlights From Apple CEO Tim Cook's Remarks To Congress

Apple Is A Job Creator

"While job growth stagnated across the U.S. over the last decade, Apple's U.S. workforce grew by fivefold. Today we have 50,000 employees, and we have employees in all 50 states. Apple has created hundreds of thousands of jobs at small and large businesses that support us, from people involved in manufacturing to people involved in delivering the products to our customers. Components for iPhone and iPad, for example, are made in Texas, and iPhone glass comes from Kentucky. In total, Apple is responsible for creating or supporting 600,000 new jobs. We've used our earnings growth to invest billions of dollars in the U.S. to create even more American jobs. We're investing $100 million to build a line of Macs in the U.S. later this year. This product will be assembled in Texas, include components from Illinois and Florida, and include equipment produced in Kentucky and Michigan."
