Apr 9, 2015 — Thanks to all of you, Apple today rescinded their policy that prohibits construction workers with past felony convictions from building its new campus in Cupertino.
According to an spokesperson from the company: "We believe in opportunity for everyone, and Apple has never had a blanket ban on hiring people with felony convictions. It recently came to our attention that, as part of a background check process unique to the Apple Campus 2 construction project, a few applicants were turned away because they had been convicted of a felony within the past seven years. We recognize that this may have excluded some people who deserve a second chance. We have now removed that restriction and instructed our contractors on the project to evaluate all applicants equally, on a case by case basis, as we would for any role at Apple."
