The National Picture

According to the U.S. Labor Department's most recent estimate, the median salary for food and beverage workers nationally is $18,130 per year ($8.72 an hour). Most food service jobs are entry level and do not require a high school diploma and provide on-the-job training. (Photo: Mario Tama/Getty Images)
