Holy crap...$2.65/hr?! I always wondered how someone could work for (let alone live on) the $5.85 fed min wage (as of 2007)....
Work 8 hours and by the time uncle sam dips in your pocket you walk away with a whoping $17 for the day.
Businesses who pay that should be ashamed...thats slave labor. Maybe Ok for 16 year olds with afterschool jobs to get extra money for CDs and such, but for anyone else, thats absurd.
We complain about cheap mexican works and then have a state law that allows THAT?
