1 Using an average hourly rate of $10 with a 50-hour workweek for 52 weeks a year – the base salary of an attendant is $26,000 – add vacation ($1000), taxes at .075 ($1950), medical benefits ($3600), sick time ($500), other insurance ($150) – the yearly labor cost is $33,200.00 (a total avg of $16/hr). Plus – a manager needs to manage and supervise the attendant. Issues such as tardiness and attendants calling in sick become major headaches for the manager. The manager’s time could be better utilized managing the operation/business.
