Submission + - High-Frequency Programmers Revolt Over Pay (

An anonymous reader writes: Programmers who design and code algorithms for investment banking are unhappy with their salary. Apparently, they receive a lower 6-figure salary whereas their bosses — who manipulate these algorithms and execute the trades — often earn millions. One such anonymous programmer points out that he was receiving $150,000 per year whereas the software he wrote was generating $100,000 each day.
