The National Average Minimum Wage

Although I'm sure minimum wage hikes are a factor, I think a large part of 15-24 unemployment rates is the growing entitlement mindset. In my city, at least, I see minimum wage job advertisements all over the place. Kids more and more feel entitled to their parents' style of living without the 20 years of work it took their parents to get there.

The Role of 'Educators'

I had always planned to get a doctorate, until I took a vacation to Yorktown and realized I learned more about my country's founding on that one vacation than in my entire education.

That's the whole point. It's not about rewarding the people there now. How do you attract the people who would be good at the job, who aren't after the fringe benefits, who aren't independently wealthy? I've met some extremely smart people at campaign events who were there to support someone much less capable. Not being able to afford a pay cut is a very common reason for not running.
