Honestly for as much damn money as Apple makes thats actually not that egregious compared to a lot of CEOs who are making that as their corporations go bankrupt. Still an obscene amount of money.

I was aboutta say. I wouldn’t have been surprised if it was in the hundred millions.

Even a hundred million is a drop in the bucket for Apple.

In 2021 they averaged more than $1B/day in revenue

Yep, apple is so rich they actually have a legitimate crisis in not being able to store all their money. They’ve had to spend massive amounts of money on the infrastructure they use to actually store all the money they have so it stays in their control

If they can eliminate their 'legitimate crisis' by paying their workers more and they aren't doing that, then they don't have a legitimate anything.

Hey Apple, how about about you give me 50 million dollars. I'll store the 50 million dollars, and I'll charge you 1 million dollars per year to do so.

That being said, I'm not a bank. I'm just some guy who has a bed, and some space for a box under his bed.

But I'll totally keep your money safe!

(And that friends, is how you get paid 1 million dollars per year to do absolutely nothing.)

You're thinking of Pablo Escobar.
