Apple’s Fourth U.S. Campus: Handicapping Where It Will Go - Bloomberg
It’s Apple’s turn to go shopping. In January, Apple Inc. announced plans for a fourth U.S. campus—a down-payment of sorts on its commitment to hire thousands of Americans and redeploy billions of dollars stashed overseas and now being repatriated under the Trump administration’s new tax law.

Five of those six states have watched at least a quarter — and in North Dakota’s case, 67% — of their call center workforce vanish since 2002. But nationally, the industry has taken off in that time, growing 20%.
