It all comes down to familiarity. A novice brick layer can only do so many bricks per day. Whereas an apprentice more, a journeyman more and a top mechanic even more.
I suspect that the technicians at the factories could be classed as top mechanics. And as such various levels of competence carry with them various levels of expectations.
A top mechanic, simply by virtue of receiving top mechanics pay is not expected to make mistakes. Lower levels can make increasing larger amounts in direct correlation
to their status decreasing.
