its one huge chicken and egg question....due to undercutting bye newer and/ or less established firms....bigger firms are forced to quote less....and thus cannot really pay their employees well.....
but dont u think some young fresh-outta-college kids start off firms because they know they are not going to get paid well in a bigger practice? then these very firms undercut the bigger firms...because inspite of the lower percentage of fees they are still making more money than they wud working in an architectural firm...
and yes to mr. kurian ...underpaying a world wide phenomenon (as far as architecture goes)....
it definitely happens in india
