Dilbert's Theorem on Salary

Dilbert's Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists
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

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
