Over the past month, we’ve seen workers at a number of companies unite and speak publicly about problems surrounding discrimination and harassment at the workplace. The biggest of which was Activision Blizzard, and now, one of the leading names in tech is among the latest to come under scrutiny. Employees at Apple are now using the #AppleToo movement to advocate for better treatment at work.
It was on August 23, 2021, that employees at apple created the website #AppleToo. Here, the workers state that Apple has “evaded public scrutiny” in regards to company’s being exposed for housing toxic work environments. They also state that “black, Indigenous, and other colleagues from minoritized racial, gender, and historically marginalized groups of people” are treated disproportionately in relation to other co-workers. The workers reference Apple’s “think different” motto when sharing its demands.
The post then calls for Apple workers at all levels - corporate, AppleCare, and retail - to stand together in this fight for equality. They also ask that other employees share their own stories and experiences.
Apple workers are the latest to come out with claims of discrimination and mistreatment at their company. If you’re interested in keeping up with their movement and supporting them on their journey, you can follow them on Twitter @AppleLaborers.
