In an attempt to improve working conditions, tech giant Apple plans on making employee schedules at retail locations more flexible, according to reports. Employees in certain Apple stores have been working toward unionization, and Apple’s introduction of these better working conditions might be seen in the light of that information.

Unless employees choose to work late shifts, they will not be required to work past 8:00 PM for more than three days a week.Read More
