It used to be that Bartender Jobs were just to get you through school. Now with the economy the way it is, it is a great job to have. My sister was a bartender for years while she was raising her daughter. It allowed her to be home with her during the hours that she was awake. With the economy the way it is, it is a great job to have as people still have to drink right? And they are probably drinking more since the economy is suck a wreck on top of it.
