Dilbert’s “Salary Theorem”

Dilbert maganagerHat tip to Arjen Lentz ( see: upstarta.com.au ) for digging up this gem:

=========================================

Dilbert‘s “Salary Theorem” states:

“Scientists and Engineers can never earn as much as administrators and sales people.”

This theorem can now be proved mathematically:

Given:

Power = Work / Time and,
Knowledge is Power

Substituting knowledge for power, we obtain:

Knowledge = Work/ Time

If time = money, then:

Knowledge = Work/ Money

Solving this equation for money, we obtain:

Money = Work/ Knowledge

Therefore, as knowledge approaches zero, money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: the less you know, the more you make.

(Arjen: I’d like to give credit to the original author of this gem, but so far the origin of this saga remains unknown – if you know, please tell!)

=======================================

In other words you will not be punished for incompetence, but kicked upstairs with more pay. And….. please keep out of the primary processes of the company.

*** Come on you brilliant geeks and nerds, show me the error in the above”proof”  ***
