Getting paid $1 has become a tradition among extremely wealthy executives whose real money comes in stocks.

Steve Jobs took a $1 salary when he returned to Apple as CEO in 1998; In 2005, Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin├é┬áreduced their salaries to $1. Other tech CEOs who take $1 salaries include Oracle’s Larry Ellison, Tesla’s Elon Musk, Zynga’s Mark Pincus, and HP’s Meg Whitman.
