From an employee vantage point, it looks like layoffs have started at the Apple Distribution Center in Elk Grove, California. A handful of workers were laid off Thursday and a good number estimated at 80+ were laid off on Friday The 13th 2016. It appears as though the job cuts were seasonal and based on the facility's predictive behavior to eliminate positions right after the April tax season. With Apple's stock price declining as of late and no amazing Iphone for consumers to talk about, the layoffs seem was no surprise. Rumor has it that there will be around round of layoffs on Monday May 16, 2016 and perhaps more throughout the month of May.

Sooo many employees hit with layoffs!!! WHY doesn't Apple at least let us know in advance!!? REMINDER: We're NOT ANIMALS! We're PEOPLE!! Really, I hope someone can start an Apple / Volt network sharing page for the purpose of giving us a heads up on things at the facility. I don't think Fb is a good idea since it's not anonymous. Anybody out there know of any good ideas... PLEASE SHARE HERE.. Tnx!
