Apple Employees Get $2,500 Bonuses In Celebration Of Major Tax Cut

Apple might be a little late to the celebration game, but it will reportedly be giving employees $2,500 in bonuses to celebrate the recently passed tax cut bill. These bonuses will supposedly come in restricted stock units and most of the people the company employs worldwide will be eligible. Apple has made no official announcement of the matter, however, nor has it confirmed the details.

The details about the employee bonuses apparently come from unnamed sources, which Bloomberg reports say that the extra money is definitely due to the tax cut that the U.S. government just handed to corporations. The bonuses will start rolling out over the next few months and employees under “director” level are eligible to receive it.

A copy of the email that employees received announcing the bonuses was also obtained by 9To5Mac, which details some of Apple’s plans in the coming year. On top of investments that it is planning on putting into creating jobs and manufacturing, Apple CEO Tim Cook also writes that the company wants to invest more in its existing employees.

“I’m excited to let you know that we’re also increasing our investment in our most important resource — our people. You are the heart and soul of Apple and we want you to share in the success made possible through your efforts. Your dedication helps Apple make the best products in the world, surprise and delight our customers, and ultimately make the world a better place,” the email reads.

“To show our support for our team and our confidence in Apple’s future, we’ll be issuing a grant of $2,500 in restricted stock units to all individual contributors and management up to and including Senior Managers worldwide. Both full-time and part-time employees across all aspects of Apple’s business are eligible.”

Other than Apple, other U.S. companies also issued bonuses to their employees. AT&T and Comcast were among those to issue $1,000 worth of extra money to their workers.
