Scientists and graphic designers are paid meanly for the amount of skill expected from them too. Accountants and lawyers are paid well - horrible, boring, difficult jobs so not many people are up for it. I think of it as them getting a bonus for putting up their hand to do society's "dirty work". And yes, I remember that you're an accountant haha ... I did "dirty work" too - stats does most people's head in but since my head's already done in I had nothing to lose :)
