Apple(NEW YORK) – After a company review period earlier this year, Apple Inc. has decided to raise the wages of its U.S. retail store employees by as much as 25%, according to The Wall Street Journal.  

U.S. full-time staffers who are paid between $9 to $15 an hour for retail sales and $20 an hour for the “Genius” tech support have had meetings with their managers as early as last week to discuss their work performance; raises would be implemented in the middle of July.

“Sales at Apple’s retail stores have more than doubled, to about $14 billion last year from nearly $6.7 billion in 2009,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
