CREW MEMBER FOR A FIREWORKS COMPANY
Last year, Macy's spent $7.2 million on the 30,000 shells of fireworks that were used in its annual Fourth of July display. This figure means something to the show's operators, who make a percentage of the overall cost. Crew managers don't do too badly either. Companies such as Tri-state Fireworks Inc. pay managers an average location salary of $2300. For 19 days of work. Kind of makes you want to go blow stuff up.
