Background Apple Inc. has been facing serious criticism, apprehensions and opposition by US population followed by their decision to go global. Recently, Donald trump said in his speech that he would bring back apple’s manufacturing back to US. Apple Inc. that previously made products 100 percent in America outsourced most of the companies labor in 2004 leaving only 10 percent in America by 2015-16. Apple’s shift in labor acquisition has left tens of thousand of people in U.S. workforce jobless. This created a huge rift in people who faced unemployment as a consequence. Apple faced a lot of criticism by the left behind U.S. workforce. A lot has been written since then about how Apple treats the workforce in China inhumanely leading to suicides, pays them severely low wages. Also, articles about drop in quality and risks of competitors such as Samsung, stealing their ideas, and several other arguments, in opposition to this move, have been written. Apple however claims that this globalization move has very little to do with monetary aspects. Rather, this move is based on the work ethics, speed of operations, flexibility and dedication of the workforce being superior in other parts of the world as compared to what is encountered in USA. This represents a huge problem for US workforce. If this problem is left undealt, and other companies follow Apples suit, vast numbers of jobs are going to be taken away from what’s turning to be an unskilled, inflexible and less cost effective labor.

Problem Statement It wasn’t long ago that products from Apple, perhaps the most recognizable name in electronics manufacturing around the world, were made entirely in America.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
