Apple’s employee discount program, which lets you pay employees more than half their salary, is about to get a new perk.
The company announced on Thursday that it is changing its policy for employees who work more than 20 hours a week, as well as those who work 40 hours a day or more.
Starting next year, all employees who make more than $50,000 a year will be eligible for the “Apple employee discount.”
This perk will last for three years.
Apple will not be adding any new perks to its employees, including a new AppleCare premium plan.
Instead, it will be offering a new “Apple discount” program, a new discount rate for existing employees, and a new rate for new employees.
This change is a welcome change for employees.
Apple’s employees have had a lot of pushback over the past few years.
After the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, in 2016, the company faced a barrage of negative reviews.
AppleInsider’s Daniel Schulman wrote in 2017 that the company’s employee discounts are “out of control.”
“Apple’s employee benefits are ridiculous,” Schulme wrote.
“There is a limit on how much a CEO can earn, how many people can work, and how many hours they can work.
Employees are also treated as disposable goods to be disposed of as needed.
This is not fair to employees and it’s a disgrace to the company.”
Apple has long been criticized for its employee discounts.
In 2013, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said employees who are over 50 years old receive “the smallest percentage of their pay” of any company.
In 2018, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau found that Apple had been paying more than 60 percent of employee benefits, compared to 17.7 percent for other companies.
