"dollar waiting on a dime" not a dime waiting on a dollar. The dime represents the lower pay scale job such as a receptionist or assistant. The dollar represents the manager level position or the higher pay scale position.

This expression is used to reemphasize a hierarchy between two individuals (e.g. a dollar should never have to wait on a dime because a dollar is worth more).
