Lowest paying Apple jobs in RTP will be worth $133,000 a year, new documents reveal

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (WTVD) -- Newly released documents give some new insight into Apple's move to the Triangle.

The records from the Department of Commerce show the state's Economic Investment Committee approved an $845 million jobs grant that would be tied to new jobs created for the proposed project through the end of 2032.

Apple would have to create a minimum of 2,700 jobs by then to avoid defaulting on the grant.
