Watch Tim Cook interview with Mad Money's Jim Cramer
Following Apple's quarterly earnings report two days ago, CEO Tim Cook sat down with CNBC's “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer to talk business and “the bigger picture”. Marking Cook's third appearance on the show, Cramer spoke with the Apple CEO about Wall Street's reaction to his company's latest quarter, job creation in the United States and his views on the future of Apple.
In terms of US job creation, Cook said Apple employs about 80,000 people domestically.
Of that number, nearly 25,000 people work in research and development. Cook said Apple is now buying more parts from US-based suppliers like Corning and 3M and underscored that an additional 6,000 people are employed by his company in a facility in Austin, Texas.
