Upwards of 3 billion annually, but Branson is living proof that trickle down economics doesn't work because unless you're doing one of the 3 things I listed above, no one is making shit. $10 an hour is a gold mine down here. If I couldn't do what I'm doing, I would be right the **** out of here a long time ago.
Servers are the highest level of the lower class. I made $20 an hour on average waiting, but it's the same $20 an hour I made 13 years ago. It hasn't gone up at all. I only worked for one place though, there may be somewhere else out there where the servers are making better than that. Lots of servers here don't make anywhere near that. I was a great salesperson and upsold everything I could to increase ticket prices.
