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.

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.
