Their cost is far less than what they are asking for the site, it has to be or they would go out of business.

Workamping for a private campground, from what I see in ads, is only for couples willing to work for less than minimum wage.
Usually park's either offer a site for a certain amount of hours or charge a much lower than rate than the public rate for the site and pay full hours. Yes, you can always find a job at or slightly above minimum wage, but that doesn't come with a place to park your RV. Even Walmart would probably say "no" if you wanted to park your RV there for the duration of your work commitment.
You will never get rich work camping. The fact is the job does not require a level of skill, expertise or experience to warrant wages much above the minimum for the area. A few of the benefits are parks are often located in desirable locations. There are often perks that add up like free use of the laundry, discounts on things like propane and RV supplies. Your commitment time is often shorter than required for many jobs. There is often flexibility in the work schedule and most parks try to match schedules for spouses. The work is seldom physically or mentally taxing. And a lot of parks pay a completion of commitment bonus.
