Apple builds in the USA with $1 billion towards advanced manufacturing jobs

Cook said Apple can "be the ripple in the pond" that creates more us manufacturing jobs, which will in turn create more jobs in the service industry to support those jobs. The company launched a new job creation landing page this week that breaks those numbers down in detail - for example, the "glass in every iPhone since its launch" is produced at a Corning plant in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, while a Nebraska company called Vishay Intertechnology "provides electrical components for many Apple products".

"How can we get more people to do advanced manufacturing in the United States?"

Unlike those firms, Apple's announcement was not a hiring promise; the company simply said that it was hoping to promote USA manufacturing with its new fund. It also comes amid President Donald Trump's push for companies to bring manufacturing jobs back to the US rather than ship them overseas.

Cook added that "By doing that, we can be the ripple in the pond".

Apple is bringing more of its manufacturing efforts to the US.

Draft Haul Suggests Steelers Adhered To Edict To Improve Red-Zone Offense
Jack Ham and Jack Lambert are inner-circle Steelers all-timers, just as critical to Chuck Noll's teams as Greene and L.C. Still, it is somewhat surprising the team chose to address their receiving situation before selecting a cornerback.

In February this year, during the company's annual shareholder meeting, Cook said Apple spent $50 billion in 2016 with its United States suppliers, which include firms like 3M Co and Corning Inc, the first time Apple has disclosed the metric. How do we grow our employee base?

Cook also said that Apple is still looking at other initiatives, including expanding the employee base of the company and providing tutorials to people on writing computer code. Apple's contribution amounts to a tiny fraction of its $257 billion in cash.

The Jobs created are a combination of those working directly for Apple and those that suppliers hire to make products for Apple.

If you are wondering about where the others are, Cook is also counting USA suppliers that make components like 3M adhesives and Corning glass, which are used in iPads and iPhones.

Cook did not however say that Apple would repatriate cash back into the United States if Trump's tax proposal was enacted. "I mean, you can take every tool and die maker in the United States and probably put them in a room that we're now sitting in". We are in a good position, but an unusual one. To invest in the United States, we have to borrow. So I think the administration, you saw they're really getting this and want to bring this (cash) back.
