Nation's Restaurant News has an article on compensation in the restaurant business.

The article concludes that where you cook (country club, chain restaurant, etc) and your gender have a high correlation to how many hours a week you'll work, and how much money you'll make. The biggest group of respondents were executive chefs.

If you want to make money as a chef, itís better not to work in a restaurant, according to a salary survey by the American Culinary Federation.

The average salary of restaurant workers who responded to the survey was $51,208, compared with $65,415 for those working in education; $63,994 for those working in health care; $83,753 for those working at private clubs; and $89,263 for the 2 percent of respondents who were self-employed.

“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”
