My entry level job out of college in 1986 paid more than that.
Those were 1986 dollars!

My starting salary in 1974 was less than that. I felt I was rich. Again, 1974 dollars.

The problem with brewing salaries is that there are many more wanting the job than the demand.

$12 and maybe benefits is about as good as it gets for an entry-level brewing job, *and* you get to work with Denny?!
Most would pay $12 an hour to brew with Denny
But he counts it like a doctor where an hour is only 50 minutes.

Could be worse he could bill like a lawyer and charge 15 minute minimums.  6 phone calls in 15 minutes?  1.5 hours billable baby.  Kha-Ching!!


Used to install and setup "Time Accounting and Billing" systems in law office 25 years ago. 

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?
