Thank You William & Salary Range

There was allot packed into your post but it demonstrated an understanding of some of the overall difficulties. It’s late to go further but I can answer your question about player salary (ranges) at FGC.

Our CBA set a base /starting salary of $1,800 a month. Individuals either negotiated or were offered salaries ranging from $1,800 to (approx) $5,500 / month. This is between 2000 & 2014 before prize W,P,S prizes & championship prize monies. FGC players had 100% of their healthcare paid and for many years FGC paid for family members (wives / children), but I think players became responsible for family coverage after 2010 maybe. They were paid a cesta allowance of $100/month. Poker room distribution of 4%. I was not there during the time they received a distribution from the slots but it was most generous during the time the Collettes were there. 401k came post 1988. We paid all costs for the Visa process for players needing visas.

I don’t think it would be fair to share who made what but the list of players making over $3k / month base during this period was limited.

One of the killers is throughout this time “on-court” injuries were not covered by commercial insurance and the company was required to self-insure the players and pay for the cost of surgery / rehab, etc That could be a killer.

At the Fort from 2007 till 2014 players made either $1,800 / $1,900 or $2,000 while I was managing.

I cannot speak for what players made at any other fronton or during any other era other than the general period from 1998 - 2014.
