In my college days, years ago, I took a college course in Engineering Ethics. (I am an engineer) We studied the different Engineering Codes of Ethics that existed. The professor repeatedly told us that you could not understand the codes unless you understood that the primary purpose of the engineering societies, back around 1900 or so, was to increase the pay for engineers, because at that time, engineers were paid quite poorly.

Well, it is relative. At that time engineers could afford a big house, a non working wife, whole bunch of kids and permanent domestic help. Now all the people who could be good as domestic help are on welfare and government "jobs".
