Also, anyone buying the BS that Jobs was taking a $1 salary because he believed in the company so much, he didn't want to seem like a greedy CEO, is way beyond naive. The $1 salary was to evade taxes. Taxes on investments is at a substantially lower rate.

Of course, paying him in stock is better. "Cap Gains" my friend is only 15%. It's smart for executives to get paid in stock vs salary. Cause salary would be taxed for the portion of income over well now $400,000 would be taxed at 39.6%. So, it's the difference between taking home $320 million or $220 million a difference of $100 million dollars. Only the dumb axx masses want to be paid in salary. We should all ask for stocks. this is why I fundamentally can't understand GOP supporters, some bumble ...k redneck thanks he has something in common with someone like Tim Cook, you aren't in their league, you think if they had a choice between keeping cap gains at 15% vs keeping the "payroll tax cut" which effected 166 million working families gave them an extra 2% in salary, they would keep your tax break ... heck no, I wouldn't fight to keep yours if I was Tim Cook. Honestly, I understand how top 2% vote GOP, but 98% you neophytes confound me always betting against your own interest, maybe that's why you don't make the money Tim Cook does.

or as Jay-Z said, we said in "On my way home"

"we not in the same bracket,
Not in the same league,
don't shoot at the same baskets,
Don't pay the same taxes,
hang with the same bytches
So how am i in the way, what is it i'm missing?"

This is rich board members who are CEOs of other companies robbing those companies blind by giving each other criminal levels of compensation.

Nothing more.

These cowards take home money that should go to Foxconn workers among others, imo. We need to stand up for our rights imo, or we'll suffer the consequences.

top 2% do not vote for Republican...they vote Dems...

I think you're referring to the studies that show "rich" people vote Republican. Again...it depends on who defines "rich". People in the 75-250 (ish) "lean" towards Republican...the uber rich go for Dems.

But the uber...super rich (like a CFO making 68M) do not worry who is in office or what rate they pay...the actual dollars always seem to remain the same while we have to bend over and take it.

How are foxconn workers "our" rights?

You could make the statement about any company...McDonalds, Nike, Any bank, any insurance company, any oil company...restaurant.

When I was (much) younger (10 yrs old), I had a paper route. I didn't think the owner of the company should divvy his money to distribute. I wanted more money (and still do), but I was happy to make money, even if it was little; much like the people at this company.

Cupcake, he was already so rich it didn't matter, really - the stock compensation made his performance as a CEO the only thing that mattered - Bad performance, stocks aren't worth much.

Soviet Russia where no one should make money!

Actually, getting a job in Apple (same for Google/M$) corporate is very difficult - They people who work at these companies are quite passionate and get rewarded for their hard work...

God forbid you get rewarded for hard work and being smart... Sigh...

Tech sites are supposed to have news about TECH, not how much CEO's make...

I don't like Apple, but I would say the exact same thing if this was about any other company's CEO.

I come here to see news about upcoming hardware, new devices, developments in technology etc. not some CEO's salary for f..k's sake... If you care about this, YOU'RE the one who is mentally 5 yrs old...

You really think Jay-Z isn't in the same bracket, doesn't pay the same low taxes? Seriously?

Artists try to get listeners to think they (artists) identify with them (listeners) but it's all image manipulation. . . he may not make exactly the same amount as Cook, but he's in the vicinity with a net worth of $475 Mil. ( http://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-celebrities/richest-rappers/jay-z-net-worth/ )

Don't kid yourself. . . Not saying he didn't earn it. . . just don't kid yourself. . .
