26. Most small businesses pay above min wage
Most mom and pop businesses pay above min wage so they can keep good employees. Unlike Walmart, K-Mart and other big box stores, small businesses cannot afford to keep training people. What most people don't understand is that it costs to train people to do a job, banks figure that it takes 3 months to train a good employee. Now on the other hand, we all know that those working in large chains are always changing employees, they aren't depending on providing service to the customer, but low prices.
