Apple CEO Tim Cook paid $56,923 for unused vacation time in 2014

“The cost of Tim Cook skipping vacation last year: $56,923,” Tim Higgins reports for Bloomberg.

“That was the amount in holiday cash-out pay that the Apple Inc. chief executive officer received last fiscal year, according to the company’s proxy filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday,” Higgins reports. “The number was included in Cook’s total $9.22 million compensation package for 2014.”

“Cook’s vacation cash-out pay — a statistic that only shows up in a handful of company filings, according to data compiled by Bloomberg — is higher than in 2013, when he received $35,000 for unused days off,” Higgins reports. “While Cook’s base salary rose 25 percent last year to $1.75 million, the amount he received for cashing in vacation time rose 63 percent. That suggests the CEO took even [fewer] days of rest and recreation in 2014 than in 2013.”

  1. We as apple fans may like the fact that the CEO is married to his job, but for mental sanity, it is necessary for every normal, healthy human to take time off regularly.

  2. ‘I don’t get a salary at Apple. I get a dollar a year so that my family can be on the health plan, but that’s it. I make 50 cents for showing up … and the other 50 cents is based on my performance.’

        1. You can keep your healthcare plan (funny, that was just a joke)
        2. You can keep your doctor (just kidding – who likes doctors anyway)
        3. You will save $2,500 per year (well your parents told you there was tooth fairy, right?)
        4. Obamacare will not pay for babies to be murdered including even after they are born (but we really care about Pacific bait fish!!)
        5. “I will reduce the deficit” (that is a real side slapper)

        I have read other things. I take it you can’t read. You must get your news from a comedy channel.
