Wages/under the table job

What's a realistic wage for someone doing waitressing/dishwashing under the table, in the USA at a small, privately owned restaurant? Not a classy place, just a breakfast-and-sandwich sort of cafe.

When I was a waitress I got $2.16 (federal minimum) or something like that plus tips. But I don't think the cafe I'm making up would get a lot of tips...
I don't know what dishwashers made since I've never done it.
She'd be waitressing/dishwashing on alternate days, so I guess her wages would change from day to day.

Yeah. Hope that made sense. Thanks!
