Inflation Concerns Persists
The stock market ended mostly in the red zone on Monday with only the Nasdaq index closing above the flat line.

Yellen stated higher interest rates would benefit society from the Fed’s point of view, pointing that the Fed would not review its monetary policy anytime soon.

Apple Employees Pushed Back
So what happened?
Last week, Apple’s (Ticker: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook issued a letter asking employees to return to the office. Although the in-person co-working would only start again in September, employees replied to the letter demanding to continue working from home. Apple’s employees noted Tim Cook’s decision to bring office activities back shows a disconnect between management and workers’ feelings. Among the demands, its employees asked Apple to allow teams to decide themselves if they would return to the office or not. Although Apple did not respond to the letter, it seems that the pandemic brought a new work philosophy to Apple’s employees.
