In Recognition of Your Outstanding Performance, We're Doubling Your Salary

jobsingotphone.jpgWill Steve Jobs soon have to give up his Guinness World Record title for “Lowest Paid Chief Executive Officer”? Perhaps.

According to Apple’s latest 10-K filing, Jobs–who has earned an annual salary of $1 since he returned to the company a decade ago–may be up for a raise. “In fiscal 2007, Mr. Jobs’s entire compensation consisted of his $1 annual salary,” Apple said in its filing. “Because Mr. Jobs’s continued leadership is critical to Apple, the Compensation Committee is considering additional compensation arrangements for him.”

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
