3. This didn't used to be true...

because teenagers held minimum wage jobs. Adults had real jobs.

4. US Retailers are just realizing this?

What will they do when we're paid $2.00 an hr. and robots don't really buy much stuff?

5. Next time a Repub trots out the "I want folks to make 30,40,50 bucks an hour" crap

I want the Dem to ask if the issue is minimum wage, or maximum wage?
Of course, that might be effective. Can't go there.

7. Well, that's a big Duh!

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]Haven't people like Robert Reich (and all of us "lefty" types) been yelling about this for a while now?

The only people surprised are the idiot TeaGOPers, as usual, who demand that Reality match their delusional philosophies and then are stunned when Reality won't comply.

8. Another glaring example of how trickle down does not work.

In reality, the rich get what they have from those below them, not the other way around. When those below them run out of money they have to go out of business.

10. Maybe Americans have finally reached their cheap ass crap quota

I am amazed at the abundance of useless halfway working shit, they want us to buy.

11. And who pays the crappiest wages of all?

Retailers.

I have lots of sorrow for those that have to work in those places.

The assholes that own them? Not one bit.

14. Usually they are considered hospitality

But if you want to lump them in with retail, sure - why not? I would still say that they pay the worst wages out of the group.

15. I can't disagree.

Most do pay their help like crap. I keep that in mind when it comes to tipping. Always a decent tip, and always cash, not on a card.
