FOX Business’ Jeff Flock speaks with “Trev’s Trees” owners Trevor Lord and Dom Patricio on the impact of inflation on the cost of Christmas trees.
It's the time of year when Santa Claus finds himself at malls and community centers across America with the sole mission of sparking holiday joy within young children ahead of the big day.
It's a big job, but data shows Santa gets compensated quite well for his efforts.
The average annual salary for this gig is $47,564 as of Dec. 13, according to ZipRecruiter. In other words, that's about $22.87 an hour.
WILL A SANTA CLAUS RALLY COME TO WALL STREET THIS YEAR?
The only caveat is that Santa's mall gig only lasts between early November through Christmas. However, during the holiday season malls usually require Santa to sit in his chair for shifts lasting upward of six to 12 hours, depending upon the mall's hours of operation and the employer, according to Monster.com.
