You can earn a whole dollar per month per referral down through X number of levels.
At $1 per referral, it would take forever to get anywhere. What makes it worse; these programs have about a 98% attrition rate.
That means that if you wanted to make $1000 a month, you would need to have had over 50 thousand people recruited into your group to have 1000 who stick around. Look at your comp plan. What would it take for you to make $1000 a month?
Pretty good odds huh?
