I worked for minimum wage in high school. It proves you'll show up on time and do a job. If you can't get past minimum wage you should be asking yourself what's wrong and how you can change. Minimum wage hurts the people it's supposed to help and keeps some from the opportunity to show _they_ can show up and do the job. Basically government is telling you you're too stupid to move up the ladder without their 'help'. PLEASE, LEAVE US ALONE !
