Apple to double Austin, Texas workforce

The State of Texas on Friday announced that Apple will significantly expand its Austin, Texas facilities with a new campus and an expanded workforce – 3,600 new jobs over the next decade, more than double Apple’s current Texas headcount, according to a statement from the governor’s office. Apple houses customer support, sales and accounting personnel in the Austin offices.

In return, Texas is kicking in $21 million, money taken from the Texas Enterprise Fund, a business incentive fund in operation since 2003.
