The results are in for the 2015 GuildSomm Salary Survey. Thank you to all who participated!
Jonah Palmer , I did not mean to portray you in any way and absolutely meant no offense sir... but by you saying that you assume that the data pool is coming from a less experienced female representation is assuming that the females that responded to this are... well, less experienced than their male counterparts- there is no sufficient data, facts, or anything that would lead you to this notion besides your assumption, which I am going to go out on a limb here and say is not accurate. Also saying that the role of a sommelier is traditionally a male's role, or traditionally male-dominant, is irrelevant and about as applicable to anything these days as the widespread use of a taste de vin. I agree that our industry is one that hopefully is more equal between salaries of men and women, but wouldn't know where to start reviewing data that could prove or disprove that (open to any suggestions on where to find that). I always do appreciate our male counterparts looking out for equality in our work force and appreciate you not being misogynist on both the financial and cultural levels (: Thank you!
