This is hard to measure...there are huge network effects happening. If they did the same exact work at a small business they would bring a tiny fraction of that value.

I own part of a business, a house, and a Jeep. And a pool.

I think this experience really colors my perception because I’m basically going around continually astonished by how much money everyone makes. (It tends to make me unsympathetic, justly or not, with people who complain about their software salaries...I was making $50k back then)

I came from the construction industry (albeit 14 years ago) and it definitely feels like software is swimming in money in comparison.

I’m definitely not saying you have to learn TypeScript to work in tech (at all!) but that it might open up some additional options for you as you seek a position.

Rick isn't wrong that relative to value brought (at least at companies with large scale), they're not overpaid. Software breaks economic models. But compared to most other comparable skilled knowledge worker jobs, like mechanical engineers or architects? ... vastly overpaid
