Dilbert on salaries!

From a Dilbert Cartoon strip from Scott Adams’ “The Dilbert Principle”:

Boss: “Our policy is to employ only the best technical professionals”.

Dilbert: “Question”.

Dilbert: “Isn’t it also our policy to base salaries on the industry average”?

Boss: “Right. We like them bright but clueless”.

Hmm. Very very insightful! Ask your manager that the next time ‘increment time’ comes along!
