16. Unfortunately some people think this way.

Even my normally liberal-minded (but apolitical) sister commented that she'll hardly be making more than minimum wage if it's raised.

Aside from the fact that this email is misleading regarding military compensation, what I find appalling is that that certain segments of the business world feel that they should not be not subject to employment standards and have a right to hire people at non-living wages. Just what does it mean "designed for a kid in high school", anyway? I know these businesses didn't open in order to provide jobs for high school kids. Why should fast food companies get a pass on labor standards? If you're working 8 hours a day, you deserve to be compensated with a living wage.
