This is False. His earnings in 2011 were the same as this year he just got 300+ million in stock which he cant touch for years to come. They already spoke about this on CNN, his salary didn't drop, people are just reading it wrong.

I don't know about you, but I don't know that any one person, even the almighty Tim Cook, is worth $181,731 per hour ($378 million divided by 2,080 work hours in a year, which includes vacation days). The success of that company was born on the backs of the fantastic employees in sales, product engineering, and other departments in which all the "regular" employees are underpaid. The average salary of an Apple Salesperson is about $12 per hour. Covert legalized exploitation at its best; harder to fight than slavery.
