DILBERT'S THEOREM ON SALARY:
Dilbert's Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists never earn as much salary as business executives and sales people.
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
and since
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
