Steve Wozniak is still an Apple employee. His after-tax salary is about $ 50 a week, the Apple co-founder said in an interview with podcast host Guy Kawasaki.
“I’m still an Apple employee – and the only person who has received a pay slip every week since the company was founded,” Wozniak said in a podcast interview published on Wednesday, reported on Apple’s 9to5Mac blog .
After deductions and taxes, Wozniak received around $ 50 a week in his account, according to the Apple founder. Wozniak said the amount, while small, remained on Apple’s payroll “out of loyalty”.
“What more important things could I do with my life?” Said Wozniak. “Nobody will fire me and I have always had a strong bond with Apple.”
Wozniak, who often comments on the tech industry and calls, among other things, to stop using Facebook, said Apple could ask him to be more involved in the company. However, he enjoys being able to express himself freely without being too involved in day-to-day business.
“I can’t really take part in the operative business, I’m too direct and honest for that and don’t want to give it up.”
