An Explanation For QA Salary Surveys

Studies prove that QA salaries lag behind developers:

Vindictiveness doesn’t pay. This has been demonstrated by a current study at Bonn and Maastricht Universities. According to this study, a person inclined to deal with inequity on a tit-for-tat basis tends to experience more unemployment than other people. Vindictive people also have less friends and are less satisfied with their lives. The study appears in the current edition of the Economic Journal.

What these scientists fail to account for is that to QA people, vindictiveness is its own reward.
