Are dealers paid like wait staff where they have a small hourly rate and are expected to make it up in tokes?

I agree that it's too localized. As a quick note on your assumptions, I doubt dealers get anywhere close to 2000 hours actually dealing. They tend to have rotations that include breaks, chip-running, etc. They also have to deal with tables breaking. –  Michael McGowan Jan 11 '12 at 1:52
I'm mostly interested in the structure of their pay. Would it still be too localized if I took out the assumptions? –  msergeant Jan 11 '12 at 1:54
I've made edits to the question to make it less "localized" please feel free to close it again if I've failed. –  msergeant Jan 11 '12 at 2:42
