Um, no Sanova. There’s other rich people who have dollar salaries too, like Mike Bloomberg, mayor of New York.

John Mackey (CEO of Whole Foods) also only takes home $1 in salary. He said it was because he had enough money already, but he makes plenty off of Whole Foods stock. At least that doesn`t come out of company coffers.

Left out the part about his illegitimate child he refused to pay child support for, and a bunch of other scumbag stuff this guy did. Chart was made by the usual mindless Apple fanboy.

I`m pretty sure they mean $1 Million is his Annual Salary as CEO of Apple.

1:48 would be the ration in millions of dollars.

Lol look, I think i know what they mean by him getting 1$ as a salary, but other share options, they most likely take what they need for that year lulz and just wanna work at apple, cause it would be sick as drat to work there.
like for food and poo, sick gadgets, car once in a while, have there houses all built, so they can focus most money into the company and build better ipods or ipads. or macs n poo

I don`t understand his salary part being a dollar, someone explain please?

Its usually a public stunt or sometimes CEOs just want to set an example for the other employees, that they don`t care about the salary that much. Steve Jobs and other $1 CEOs make millions $$ from bonuses and share options.

References for previous post to stop any bitchfest.


FYI, Alpaca fleece can also be called fibre, but not as common a name.

A vegetarian may use animal products like wool as it does not harm the animal, much like how they may eat eggs. Some chose to eat eggs but drink no milk, some may eat no animal products but still wear wool. If they do not eat animals themselves, but still use (cruelty free) animal products, they are vegetarian.

A vegan uses no animal products what so ever. No milk, no eggs, no silk, no cashmere, no wool, no fleece. Did it come from an animal? If so, no.

Whatever, you can google the rest.

"Silk is made by unwinding the cocoon of the silkworm, which in turn kills it, because it`s gone into it`s pupae stage and cannot survive without the cocoon to protect it."

You both need to look up your facts. Cocoons are boiled to kill the larvae FIRST. OR the larvae can be allowed to pupate and hatch, and the now empty cocoon used to make silk. However, since the silkmoth makes a hole to get out, the cocoon does not unravel in one single thread like a boiled cocoon, but many shorter pieces. Silk made this way is called Vegetarian silk, or peace silk. Almost all silk on the market it made by boiling the cocoons, to find peace silk you have to shop around, and will usually not find any finished products (sheets stc) made from it, only raw fabric (make your own!)

Zepher, alpacas grow fleece, NOT wool. Wool comes from sheep. Both are shorn for it. Angora wool and cashmere are from goats. Cashmere is brushed from special bred cashmere goats as they shed it

In the extracting of silk the caterpillars are boiled alive so "strict vegan" I don`t think so

@rheaonon silk and wool are by products of animals that don`t result in the injury to them... silk works just make silk... and you have to shear the... is it alpacas? so he probably doesn`t think of it in the same category as leather

CEOs don`t collect a salary because it takes out of their own companies` profit margin, so instead, they take the minimum amount necessary and live off of millions or billions in bonuses a year. Look around, just about all CEOs take a $1 salary, it`s not a big sacrifice for them.

"Well that was a waste of time. Do people actually care about this nonsense?"

By spending time commenting that a submission that appears on an entertainment website has wasted your time, you are hurling yourself into a three-fold of redundancy.

The only thing that is kinda cool about him is that he was declared deceased once. That`s pretty cool.

"umm how can he earn a dollar a year as a ceo?! "

In most places in the US, in order for a contract to be binding, there has to be an identifiable exchange in the terms.

From there, a person that wants to convince a public corporation that he can turn a losing company into a winner can propose a contract wager: "I`ll take a dollar a year until the company wins." Next, the board will agree to bonuses to be paid when certain goals are reached.

Tried and lost: Rick "Chuck" Wagoner, the guy that ran what used to be GM.
Tried and won: Alan Mulally, the dude that used to run Boeing and now runs Ford.

It`s his official salary as CEO of Apple. All other money made is "donations" and "gifts." Basically, under the table money.

It`s so he can avoid the huge taxes that would come from actually having to pay for all the money he made. I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again. Jobs is one HELL of a con man, but nothing more.
