    Question cellar "competative wages"

    I read the thread about how much a brewer should be making....what are the "competative wages" for a cellar person?

    From previous breweries, cellar dwellers started at 10.00 per hour and this was with no experience. Another large brewery started cellarmen at 11.00 per hour. Be advised that this is regional and reflects a larger city. Also, it is all relative, here in WA state, our minimum wage is over 7 bucks per hour and rising again in Jan 2006 to high 7ish range (will be the highest in the nation). That being said, the brewers were only making a buck or two more per hour.

    hope this helps somewhat...I am sure that there are cellarmen making min wage and some making decent wages, you also have to look at what they are responsible for and what your local labor market is doing.

    thanks for the info

    thanks, I'm just trying to figure out what the "average" is in the industry. Any info is good info.
    Actually it would be cellarwomen, if not cellerperson, or sometimes on a bad day cellarbi*ch.
    thanks again.

It might be helpful. with your history and experience something on the high end of this scale is probably fair and realistic.
