Apple to Invest Billions Toward 2 New Right to Work Locations

Apple is investing in not just one, but two locations in Right to Work states.

The first place will be in Wake County, North Carolina, in Research Triangle Park. Here, they plan to invest $1 billion in order to increase research and development. In addition, they plan to create 3,000 new jobs over the next decade or so.

From Area Development Magazine:

“Innovation has long been North Carolina’s calling card and Apple’s decision to build this new campus in the Research Triangle showcases the importance of our state’s favorable business climate, world-class universities, our tech-ready workforce, and the welcoming and diverse communities that make so many people want to call North Carolina home. […] This announcement will benefit communities across our state and we are proud to work together to continue to grow our economy and bring transformational industries and good paying jobs to North Carolina.”

“As a North Carolina native, I’m thrilled Apple is expanding and creating new long-term job opportunities in the community I grew up in. […] We’re proud that this new investment will also be supporting education and critical infrastructure projects across the state. Apple has been a part of North Carolina for nearly two decades, and we’re looking forward to continuing to grow and a bright future ahead.”


Meanwhile, Apple is also adding a location in Hendricks County, Indiana with a $100 million investment. This will create around 500 new jobs over the next few years.

So this will be a great addition to the economies in these areas. It also shows how Right to Work states attract even the best of companies.
