Some managers earn less than writers. Managing and writing are two distinct disciplines. People should be paid according to the work they provide and not the social status, perceived or otherwise, of the position they hold.

I don't know if this is even a valid question, but this scenario

unsaid/unwritten) minimum salary gap between a tech pubs
manager-editor and his/her senior writing staff? If the manager only
made $20,000 more than the highest paid writer, could that be
considered unacceptable? Unacceptable to the manager-to-be, that is.
