16. It isn't just unskilled people who make low wages
I have a 4 year biology degree. I have 5 years experience in quality assurance in the food industry and am looking for a different job. I don't really want to be a quality manager and am considering a slightly different field. The jobs that I qualify for don't pay well. I have seen advertisements requesting a 4 year science degree and requiring some lab experience paying $9 or $10 hour. I have applied to jobs that say "wage negotiable" and interview. They ask how much I want to make and when I say at least $14-$16/hour, the whole tone of the interview changes.
Almost every job advertised in the newspaper pays under $14.00/hour.
