Once upon a time, some retail workers at an Apple thought they might want a union.
One apparently unhappy Apple employee named himself as the boss head of the Apple Retail Workers Union.
Now, it looks as though Cory Moll is moving on.
Tomorrow will be my last day at Apple.

According to CNET’s Josh Lowensohn:
“I feel that the time has come to go explore the world, discover new opportunities and learn new skills,” Moll said in an e-mail. His last day is tomorrow, where he’ll be “clapped out,” an Apple tradition where employees gather to clap when a longtime staffer makes their final exit. It’s the same thing that happens on product launch days when early morning customers make their way into stores.
It’s little wonder Moll is moving on. The Apple Retail Workers Union never became the bargaining agent of any of Apple’s employees and, as a result, really had no dues from which Moll could become a bona fide union boss.
“Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth.”
