Steve Jobs. Yup, evil industrialist. If moveon.org posts weren’t all written on Macs they may have taken a second between bashing banks and auto companies to note:
Apple makes record profits of $6bn in last three months.
From Apple’s 10-K: As of September 25, 2010, the Company had approximately 46,600 full-time equivalent employees and an additional 2,800 full-time equivalent temporary employees and contractors.
Apple Inc is non-union. Steve Jobs is famously anti-union.
Apple computers are made in China.
Do I have a beef with Apple? Nope. Not all all. I pray that Mr. Jobs has a speedy recovery from his illness and can quickly return to the helm of his company. I just found it odd today that Steve Jobs never gets singled out as an anti-union, outsourcing, greedy industrialist pig like the banks, auto companies, sports team owners and anyone else successfull that’s not part of the entertainment industry. I just can’t figure out how all this selective liberal mindset works. Not that I’m losing sleep over it. Oh well, time for a beer while listening to some Udo Dirkschneider on my Zune.
