Steve Jobs' Apple annual salary still just $1

If you're employed then the chances are that you earn more through your salary than Steve Jobs does from Apple.

The Cupertino Computers CEO gets paid just $1 per year for his work at Apple - and has done for the past 10 years.

But don't start a turtle-neck fund-raiser just yet, as Jobs is still doing okay financially. Well, more than okay in fact.

A SEC filing has revealed that the Apple boss has 5.5 million Apple stock shares, which is worth about £1.16 billion, and it has also been announced that he hasn't sold a single share since he rejoined the company in 1997.

Jobs' income is also boosted by the fact he owns 138 million shares of Disney stock (£3.45 billion), which earned him £35 million in dividends last year, and is the largest shareholder in the company.

That $1 salary doesn't sound so bad now does it?
