    Elop didn't stay in his job. His employer shed the business he was hired to save and then let him go as part of the deal.

    I doubt that any of these people make their primary income from their job. Their bonuses, pay, and perks are small potatoes compared to the income generated from various holdings, networking, and industry influence. In other words, you don't become a billionaire by bringing home under 10 million a year.

    The reward for cutting labor, outsourcing and scrimping. The 99.9% do the work and the few at the top take everything.
