Apple employees are following most of the Silicon Valley and giving money hand over fist to the Obama campaign compared to McCain’s. The valley’s other behemoth, Google, is also lopsided toward Obama in employee giving.
Both Apple and Google (company, not employees) took up another traditionally liberal cause this week by supporting California’s No on Proposition 8 . Apple announced Friday that it would donate $100,000 to the No on Prop 8 campaign, which opposes a measure to ban gay marriage that California voters will consider a week from Tuesday.
Of note, former Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore, sits on Apple’s board.
