Old-fashioned butlers are a dying breed, according to Steve Laitmon, owner of The Calendar Group, a Connecticut-based staffing agency. The traditional live-in butler is gradually being replaced by household managers who often earn a lot more than their predecessors.

Many professional butlers now find work by renting out their services on short-term contracts of a few months or less, according to Katie Bardaro, lead economist at PayScale. These, as well as the butlers who work at high-end hotels, receive a larger proportion of their earnings from tips.
