Are you saying that system administrators that work their butts off to 
learn their profession should influence programmers to coddle those that 
hire incompetent administrators because the business trying to "dabble" 
in technology treats their technology infrastructure as a hobby and not 
a resource that's important to their business needs?  Just clarifying.

Average admin pay (in the US) is close to the $50,000 mark in private 
industry, climbing close to or over the $100,000 mark in many cases. 
Less than that and you're either working in the government or education 
field or there is a problem with the business, usually.
