Money & The Food Industry

By | source: May 16th, 2012

It’d be an understatement to say America loves food. The food industry is one of the most lucrative in the country and the big wigs of fast food chains are raking in the doe, while their foot soldiers run the business essentially. A fast-food worker is regarded to as the lowest median paying job in the U.S., according to the infographic. Getting paid between $6.80 and $7.90 an hour, members of the food service industry are forced to work a little harder for extra cash.

The tip. It’s a word known to rear it’s head around the close of a meal. On average, we tip 17.5%. The infographic also left some pointers for getting a higher tip percentage. Things as simple as a touching the shoulder of the customer and squatting to be at eye level while talking could get you that little extra. What defines a good tip to you? And how does one obtain it?
