You're on the right track, but I'll need more information to convince me. Like IQR, Standard deviation, weighted averages.

Sorry, I made an assumption that Dilbert work is a flat contract (aka, no extra pay for extra hours).

If the extra hours are paid then indeed a 5% increase seems reasonable as it would really be 5% increase. Plus the 100% extra hours means a bigger paycheck.

So either he is being offered a fair deal, or he is getting highly screwed. It would depend on his contract. Interesting enough a flat contract would be ideal for Wally. As he is getting paid for not working.

5% raise for twice the work? That would mean 200% work for 105% pay.

So the company values Dilbert's work (100 * (1 - (105 / 200)))% less. A downgrade in salary of 47.5%. Not a raise but a decrease in pay.

If the workload is just a 5% increase, then Dilbert will be getting around the same. Dilbert only wins if the workload is increased less than 5%.

And thats without taking into account the health related problems from over-working.
