We did the math to calculate how many hours it took Bob Iger to make what his workers earned in one year when he ran Disney

Disney CEO Bob Iger just stepped down, and while it's not surprising that CEOs like him make a lot more money than their employees, the massive extent of that pay gap can sometimes be overlooked. US companies are required to publish their chief executives' annual compensation, as well as the ratio of that compensation to the annual pay of the company's median employee. Using those ratios, we calculated how long it took CEOs at 19 of the biggest companies in the US to make what at typical emplo...

Steve Jobs would have been 65 on Monday. Here's how the late Apple CEO saved the company from disaster and set it on the path to a $1 trillion valuation. (AAPL)
