I'm kind of curious what people think an appropriate wage should be for various positions in VT commonly filled by H2B visa workers such as housekeepers, dishwashers, line cooks, etc. These aren't exactly advanced positions.
Alternatively, do some of you even know what the resorts are currently paying their H2B visa workers for these positions? I hope no one is assuming they're just paying all their H2Bs minimum wage...
Whatever it costs to get people to show up.
I doubt resorts are paying bare minium wage, but I don't know. My experience with this is limited to working at an outdoor water park in high school (got paid ~$2 an hour over minimum wage at the time, but the park was exempt from paying time and a half overtime), listening to skiing podcasts on the program (sounds like it's an upper middle class young person thing to do that involves some US culture immersion), and random nuggets though the grapevine via friends that have held various seasonal jobs at MWV-based resorts.
