engineers are paid less while managers are paid more

Engineers who do the actual work an have the whole knowledge about the subject are paid far less than managers who have very little knowledge as compared to engineers. Due to this technology might take a blow since people tend to go toward management than be engineers. Do you think the trend should change and the person who does the actual work should be paid more than anyone else.

i really dont think so... its actually natural for the guys to think like that at the initial stages of there career... if so what would you make of railway minister,,,, does he need to know how to drive a train or someone of sports minister needs to know how to play each games ... managing is far more difficult a thing to do as compared to some specific tasks managing includes does not only include planning but also the most important part execution, and also many other important factors,,, try reading some management books ...i think you'll better understand it that way thanks sid

engineers who do the actual work per instruction are called the understudies. managers do the mental planning on what to do at a lesser cost without sacrificing quality of work, they get things done thru other people. NOPE, the trend is irreversible....
