10 companies that have created the most jobs for Americans

CEOs of big corporations love to tout job creation as much as President Trump does, but who is really delivering?

While Trump has credited his leadership for the current economic boom and low unemployment rate in many tweets, personal finance website GoBankingRates.com listed which companies are truly responsible for some of the hiring since 2016.

Unsurprisingly, Apple, the most valuable company in the world, came out on top by creating more than 20,000 jobs.

Early last year, the technology giant announced its plans to create a record number of opportunities and establish a new U.S.-based campus as part of a new $350 billion initiative to give back to the U.S. economy after being critcized for years for outsourcing manufacturing to China.

And, while Amazon, which came in second as the biggest job creator, nixed its plans to build a second headquarters in New York in February, the e-commerce giant has plans to create more than 11,000 jobs for Americans this year.

Insurance giant Progressive wasn't far behind either with its announcement in January that it plans to hire more than 10,000 new employees over the next year.
