Try 10 times, the lawyers make 10 times what the engineers make. Thats because Carly-types figured out that they can make more money by manipulating the corporate world (mergers, staged bankruptcies, selloffs, bonuses, perks) than by building better products.
Since their primary personal money-engine involves the boardroom shake-ups, then sure, the lawyers make 10 times. All the engineers do, after all, is build things, make them better, figure out how to keep a rocket-engine from collapsing under the stress, etc etc. And nowadays, who gives a rip about stuff like that.
