Well As someone who is actually a business owner and also someone who is also a long-term software engineer, I can confidently tell you without a doubt that software engineers are really underpaid for the actual responsibilities which they often bear and also the value which they provide.... I have been into software enginnering for more than ten years, so what i am stating are strictly observations and not an opinion....

Well From the risk and also a value perspective, there aren’t lot of jobs that has such a very large potential impact.....

for example Just look at the actual risks and the exposure which are associated with the job. A commerce outage could actually cost millions of dollars per day in lost revenue. a software exploit that is leading to an actual data theft could also cost hundreds of millions of dollars per event. same way Applications that actually fail to really meet users expectations could also cost millions in the lost customers that could occur,just a single or two bad events could even actually kill a company!...so ensuring that software engineers are well paid is one of the best ways to prevent those examples of bad events which i listed above......

Software engineers do alot of work to ensure that everything goes well and i believe they deserve to earn alot as a software engineer...
