Salary Survey

When I read that thread about the kid who wanted to make $250000 / year it got me wondering what the average green industry business owner does make per year.

I think you need to restate and ask what people make (individually). but I also think most people will lie or be embarrassed to admit what they make. Some because it is so little and some because it is so much.

And a lot of people who are not incorporated ( do proper bookeeping) really don't know.

that is the beauty of a poll, isn't it? it an anonymous way to respond. I answered the poll, and you don't know what salary range I selected, right?

should ask a survey about profits in ur pocket.... a 5 employee company grossing 100,000 is way different than a solo or 2 man crew that makes 100k

I guess I didn't answer properly. My point was I read your poll as asking what I think the average is country wide where I believe you are really wanting to know what we each make and compile an average.

Maybe now you will know what I meant.
