In a Work Day, One Apple Employees Makes More Than $2,200 in Revenue

Apple must be pretty proud of its employees, or at least we think it should.

The revenue of Cupertino’s California based Apple was about $320,000 per employee in the first three quarters of the year. Now, compare the numbers, let’s say, with a company like J.C. Penney Co. who brings home only $124,000 per employee per year. Notice the almost triple difference?
