Apple Laying Off Some Retail Store Employees

Posted Aug 13, 2012

Apple has started to lay-off some of their recently hired employees at retail stores according to MacRumors.  All of the Apple retail store employees at a United Kingdom store with less than 6 months of experience were laid off.  An Apple retail store in Washington D.C. has cut employee hours and is in the midst of a hiring freeze as well.  It is unknown why Apple is scaling back, but my guess is that it is just a routine reassessment of human resources at the company.
