This video sucks! Remember back when videos had great tunes and were 99% pure shredding and hucking? That was the good days.

Well his boss (the GM) makes $600,000-900,000 based off commission. The owner made over $4 million last year. Before my dad worked at the dealership he owned his own shop. He made a little more money, but worked and stressed a lot more.

I agree! My dad is a technician (ASE advanced master) at a dealership. They charge $105 an hour to work on a car. His cut is $27 an hour and he has to buy all his own tools too. Flawed system.

If I was a bike mechanic you would have to pay me more money to mow grass in the hot sun, clean toilets, or deal with stinky shoes. I wonder what the average amount of savings a bike mechanic gets from store/company discounts and freebies? These make it a little better, but I would still rather go to my crappy job and make more than double what the average bike mechanic makes.
