Here's the answer to the question "why is my salary so low?":
About your salary:
Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business
Now a rigorous mathematical proof that explains why this is true:
Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.
Postulate 2: Time is Money.
As every engineer knows,
-------- = Power
Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have
--------- = Knowledge
Solving for Money, we get:
---------------- = Money
Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity
regardless of the Work done.
Conclusion: The less you know, the more money you make.
