“Apple says that it has achieved its goal of establishing equal pay for women and men, and it’s also becoming more diverse by ramping up its hiring of non-whites and women,” Aaron Smith reports for CNNMoney. “‘We’ve achieved equal pay in the United States for similar roles and performance,’ reads the Apple report. ‘Women earn one dollar for every dollar male employees earn. And underrepresented minorities earn one dollar for every dollar white employees earn.'”

“Apple is still dominated by white males. Whites comprise 56% of the U.S. work force, and 68% of the global work force is male,” Smith reports. “But the company claims that it’s getting better.”

“The company said that only 32% of its global work force is made up of women, though they represent 37% of new hires around the world,” Smith reports. “That’s an improvement from 2014, when women represented 31% of new hires.”
