Forbes has come out with the list of highest paid CEOs and guess who’s on top? You guessed it, Stevie Jobs. While Jobs took a $1-a-year salary like the Google Guys, those stock options he got in return made for an excellent monetary gain. Since Apple stock did so fantastic during 2006, Jobs made more than $646 million through the compensation and is probably taking a shower in hundred-dollar bills right now.
The list includes other tech peeps like Michael Dell, but he only made $153 million, so who cares. I mean I’m sure the guy down the block at the Quiznos makes like $130 million a year in stock options, right? Congratulations Jobs. You worked hard for your money. Eat it up and go buy a Maserati or something.
