Dilbert’s Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists never earn as much salary as business executives, sales people & Management guys.
This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the
following three postulates:
- Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power (Knowledge=Power)
- Postulate 2: Time is Money (Time=Money)
- Postulate 3 (as every engineer knows): Power = Work/Time
It therefore follows:
Knowledge = Work / Time
Time = Money, we have:
Knowledge = Work / Money.
Solving for Money, we get:
Money = Work / Knowledge
Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of Work done.
Conclusion 1: The less you Know, the more you Make.
Conclusion 2: This is the reason why your BOSS is paid more
