SEATTLE (AP) — Microsoft pledged $500 million to address homelessness and develop affordable housing in response to the Seattle region's widening affordability gap.
Hiring will reportedly slow in some divisions, but Apple is still on track to add enough employees to eclipse Dell in its own backyard.
The remaining $25 million will be used to address homelessness in the greater Seattle region. While high-paid employees at companies like Microsoft, Amazon.com Inc., Alphabet Inc. and Facebook Inc. can often afford higher housing costs, people working outside the industry have struggled. Rising rents have also exacerbated homelessness.“Teachers, nurses, first responders and many in key roles at nonprofits, businesses and tech companies now begin and end their workdays with long commutes,” Microsoft said. In some cases, that’s meant including affordable housing in new corporate developments, as Alphabet’s Google is planning to do in San Jose, California.
Corp. pledged $500 million to support affordable housing in the Seattle area, an effort to address concern that technology companies’ financial success has pushed less wealthy people out of their communities. Microsoft’s pledge is the largest financial commitment it has made on a single community issue, a spokesman said. The company, which announced the plans late Wednesday, has earmarked $475 million to fund construction loans for affordable housing in the area over the next three years.
For years, tech companies have been under fire for causing soaring housing prices in certain areas. Now, Microsoft Corp. is doing something about it.
Sprint Corp. says it will stop piping individual customers’ real-time locations to data middlemen following similar moves by rivals last week. The move by Sprint, and earlier decisions by T-Mobile US Inc., AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., came after a report earlier this month suggested some subscriber-specific location data is easy to pull without users’ consent. “As a result of recent events, we have decided to end our arrangements with data aggregators,” a Sprint spokeswoman said.
