The least you can legally pay a 16 year old.

Call it what it is, own up to it.

One of my very OCD friend of a friends told me how her new workers she hires forget minute details, and she is a pretty liberal fire-er (if you get told where copies go twice, that's it). She only hires 22+ year olds, and told me how she pays a good wage, and doesn't understand why people don't work hard for it. I asked her how much she's paying these people. "Minimum wage".

...

I told her you can't ask for perfection for that money, and come on, "that's the least you can legally pay a 16 year old", and that isn't a "good wage" especially in seattle, that's babysitting wages after taxes. She doesn't agree. Evil b!tch. Sorry for the rant. IMO she's the type of person that is helping separate the poor from the rich, doing that kind of stuff.

How can she not understand you get what you pay for.. the concept is simple.

Lets see how she would feel if the roles were reversed.

I can say this as an employer, you get what you pay for. The quality of work a minimum wage employee gives you compared to a $20+ hour compensation is massive.

Kind of like food....pay $6 for a meal and you get ****, pay $30 for a meal and it should be pretty damn good!

Disagree sometimes little hands come in very handy in a factory.

1. Assuming she would ever be in that situation
2. If she were, she would understand what it took not to be in that situation, and work her butt off. This is the difference between poor people, and the difference between rich people.

Even then they're completely outclassed by 6-10 year old boy hands.
