Dilbert is way smarter than that. Read:


Dilbert's Theorem on Salary states that engineers and
scientists can never earn as much salary as business
executives and sales people.

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

By substitution, since Knowledge = Power, Postulate 3 becomes:
    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: The Less you Know, the More you Make.
