1. In Minnesota, entry-level medical staff people get minimum wage.

Even CNAs working in care facilities. When you visit a memory care unit here, you'll discover that all of the patient contact staff are Somali immigrants who have completed a short course at a local community college. They get $12/hr. My mother-in-law was in such a place. It was understaffed. The care staff, while compassionate, had poor English language skills and too little time to provide the care required by elders with dementia.
