Some coffee ain’t so hot

THE proliferation of coffee shops and purveyors springing up around the Terrace can lead one to think these are highly profitable enterprises. However, next time you are sipping your latte, The Note asks you to keep in mind that 90 per cent of coffee shop owners earn less than the average weekly earnings figure. Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show the average full-time adult earns $1006.70 per week, or $52,348 per annum. As well as coffee shop owners, 74 per cent of butchers and 47 per cent of cabinet makers earned less than average weekly wages. So leave a tip.
