"Several construction workers who were hired to build the exterior of Apple’s new campus in Cupertino were ordered to leave the site in January due to prior felony convictions ... [as] anyone with a felony conviction or facing felony charges 'does not meet owner standards[.]' "

"Formerly incarcerated workers have little representation in the tech industry, and the few positions they hold 'are largely through employment in services such as construction.' "

Why it's important
Apple, construction is one of the only lines of work where people with prior felony convictions can find a job. Do you really want to be the ones to prevent their being a productive member of society? Doesn't fit your ethos of inclusiveness. Also, employment is a key factor in preventing recidivism. Do you want to contribute to it?

Note: I understand Apple is very protective of its proprietary information. But how does that apply here? These guys are laying reinforcement and pouring concrete...
