I still do not think you can equally compare them with skills like plumbers and electricians. The reason these trades can get away with a $75/hr rate is because the average consumer does not need them that often. I also don't really want to set a standard for chef salaries as this should be dictated by locale, supply and demand, individual skill, ect. not a government mandated training.
This is your opinion and you are entitled to it.
However; I do not agree.
I found during a Google search that plumbers can make as much as $50,000 (median income) and electricians as much as $71,000 for their work.
Both trades can endure some pretty bad situations.
Who's going to argue that preparing and serving 3,000 people at once or putting out 400 covers on a very busy night is just as bad, if not worse than anything those trades can come up with.?
Yet, the plumber and electrician command a higher salary simply because they are not needed as much?
Bogus, to say the least.
