Unionists Next Target for Destruction: Apple, Inc.

-By Warner Todd Huston

A four-year Apple store employee in San Francisco wants to unionize the low wage workers that help customers in Apple Stores across America. Should he succeed, this will, of course, take one of the few successful companies we have left in America, hobble it with jobs-killing union rules, and destroy its jobs like the rest of them.

Cory Moll, 30, has a plan to take a bite out of Apple, it seems. He is claiming that the minimum wage, retail jobs of the floor helpers at Apple stores are beset with “unfair practices.” So, he wants to organize the 30,000 retail employees in Apple’s 325 brick-and-mortar stores.

Using Twitter and Facebook, Moll is trying to get the rest of the country’s Apple store employees on his jobs killing bandwagon. Fortunately, he has yet to gain much support from them. Before I get to more of the specifics of this tale of self-immolation, let me just say this: Apple store jobs are not careers. These are low wage for a reason. They are starter jobs for young people, not the sort meant to be a career with which a family can be raised.

If this idiot is still a shop floor helper after four years and at 30-years-of-age to boot, it is clear he has no ambition to start looking for an actual career and merely wants a union to coddle him in his low skilled job for the rest of his practically useless life.

But what will be the result if he is successful? What else but the loss of jobs! Apple will end up firing thousands of employees in order to be able to afford to pay for the ones that will suddenly cost them triple the costs.

Further, this will mean the end of thousands of entry-level jobs that young people can get to learn how to be an employee. Entry-level jobs for young people are very important. They teach them all sorts of job skills and they serve as a resume enhancer to show that, at their young age, they were dependable employees.

But this doofus will wipe out this opportunity for thousands of young people immediately and hundreds of thousands into the future.

Meanwhile, this Moll character is puffing himself up as some sort of hero of Biblical proportions. “It’s kind of a feeling of David versus Goliath,” he said to reporters. No, it isn’t, Mr. Moll.

Let us hope that this loser fails miserably at unionizing Apple store employees, like he has failed miserably at finding a worthy career for a 30-year-old man.

  • Hello
    America Inc. does not seek to provide opportunities for a career
    in America any longer. America Inc. seeks only workers. Employees.
    So, it is wonderful for our future workforce folks to get Unioned-Up
    to seek a life in our America run by America Inc.

    America Inc. are the folks who originated the battle cry: Lower Taxes. Less Spending. Clearly America Inc. is in a battle now to dismantle our U.S. Government - Federal / State / and Local. Lower Taxes: more of your money available for America Inc. Less Spending: more of your money available for America Inc. Our society and culture take your money out of the accounts of America Inc. America Inc. wants to stop all that. America Inc. wants the military / industrial / media complex to be paid with your money, along with multinational oil corporations. America Inc. has no interest in seeing your money going to public health care, PBS, hot school lunches for your children. Your Health Care money ought to go to Corporations, as America Inc. sees it. This battle is all about America Inc. taking over American life. It is not pretty. That's it. Stay Tuned.

  • Looks like Warren Todd Huston gets off dumping on store clerks. "Idiot...doofus" ! In person he must really be a special case - one of those "Someone call the manager to get this guy out of the store" kind of cases.
    You can see why he's against store workers having a union. They might be able to say no to his abuse.
    Bet you he tells everyone what he knows is best for them.
    He says unions ruin companies, but American companies prospered when union membership was twice as high in the 50's. Union membership swelled as the U.S. came out of the great depression.
    Where did the middle class come from anyway? Good paying jobs.
    But Warren Todd Hunter's job is to call store clerks "Idiot" and "doofus". Easy money for Mr. Hunter even though he's clearly a "starter" in writing. I would advise him that for him writing should not be considered a career. Perhaps he should try doing something useful, like helping people find the products they really need in a store.

  • Well, Pubby, you can crap all over thirty year-old floor employees at retail establishments as being lesser-people all you want.

    Let me just remind you, there's nothing glorious about being middle age and writing on the internet.

  • As I was saying before the system ate my comment:

    If there's anything worse than being a thirty year-old retail floor employee, it's being a middle-age man who posts things on the internet.

    Let's be honest. You're not a journalist. You're a blogger. There's a substantial difference. If you can't hold yourself back from terms like "job killing" or "Obamacare", you're not a journalist. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Anyone could do your job, even the lowly thirty year-old retail floor employees at an Apple Store that you take such pride in devaluing.

  • In reply to Umgawa:

    And you are a moron commenting on a blog. So what? I never said there is anything wrong with being in retail. Get a clue.

  • In reply to publiusforum:

    "If this idiot is still a shop floor helper after four years and at 30-years-of-age to boot, it is clear he has no ambition to start looking for an actual career and merely wants a union to coddle him in his low skilled job for the rest of his practically useless life."

    Um, you did right there.

  • In reply to Umgawa:

    And, just in case you're not sure where you managed to insult everyone in the retail industry, let clarify:

    You have managed to state that anyone who is still working the retail floor after four years and/or thirty years of age has no ambition or skill, and is practically useless.

    Because, really, it takes so much intelligence to post on a frickin' blog.

  • In reply to Umgawa:

    And another point: If you hold stock in Apple, even a few shares, that should be disclosed. Reason being that you're railing against the unionization of Apple Stores, which would ultimately cost Apple money and thereby dilute shareholder value, which would cause financial harm to yourself.

    Either that, or you were just biased against unions going into the article, and so were unable to achieve any level of objectivity, which makes this "news" instead of actual news.

    I look forward to your future articles on the welfare state, why Obamacare needs to go, and how quoting Sarah Palin verbatim is more proof that the mainstream media is too liberal.
