Apple CEO Tim Cook was awarded US$378 million in compensation last year, making him by far the top-paid CEO among big public companies in a study published by New York Times last week.

Tim Cook was paid US$378 million in 2011, more than any other American CEO, reflecting an one-time award of Apple stock. Just how much money is that ? New York Times has provides us a infographic chart to tell us what Tim Cook’s compensation could buy. A Foxconn assembly worker is paid roughly $17 a day, he need to be immortal and work more than sixty thousands years to achieve the same one-year salary amount as Tim Cook get. The gap is huge, this is rather a sad and awful numerical figure for any Foxconn worker. Can we just minimize the figure to, let say 5,000 years, will that be possible ?
