Also lets keep in mind that when McDonalds started out, they cut their fries and grilled the patties right there. They only started going frozen as they grew larger in order to maintain consistency instead of freshness. Hell, if you go to a McDonalds in some countries, the food is quite good due to more competition over quality instead of speed.

I honestly don't think salaries are out of line. Tech workers should make less than management, they have a smaller scope of responsibility.

Managers having a larger "scope of work" is weasel wording because their work is entirely different and not comparable. That, and Managers are almost *never* held accountable when things go wrong unless it's such a bad fuckup that a scapegoat is needed. If a project doesn't ship on time or bugs end up in production, it's always seen as engineering's or QA's fault, the not the manager.
