Gus has been a fairly high level drug dealer for several years, decades maybe. Million dollars drug deals. You have to assume vast wealth. Then, on top of this, he is the owner of 13 Los Pollos Hermanos franchines which by themselves would be very profitable. Yet... In spite of all that money, wealth and power... he spends all day working at a fast food restaurant? He drives a Volvo station wagon to protect his cover? At what point does he cash out and live like a king free of the stress of being caught? He makes all that money at so much risk and for what? So he can work behind a register?
