    I am a long time lover and supporter of DiBruno Bros and am happy to see them flourish. However, I take issue with the paltry pay it seems their cheesemongers are paid. Currently, DiBruno Bros is hiring (via Craigslist) cheesemongers and offering to pay between $9 and $11 per hour. At $10 and hour, working full time for 50 weeks of the year, an employee would make $20,000 (pre-tax) per year. It an exploitation of these workers, who are the backbone of the company’s success. Its sad to me that, ultimately, DiBruno Bros is just another company interested in profits at the expense of their employees.

      That is paltry and I imagined it would be more. However, the market dictates, eh? Want to make money . . . don’t be a cheesemonger, at least not at DiBruno Brothers.

      you just now realized that most service industry employees, even at gourmet stores, don’t make much money (leaving aside whether or not the $9-11 figure is accurate, as the post also said “For immediate consideration, please e-mail your resume and specify your salary requirements, availability and preferred location in your cover letter”)? Man, your brain is about to get blown when you learn about how much line cooks make at your favorite restaurants…
