    Are you saying that people who work minimum wage put out little or no effort to improve themselves? Or that if given the choice to earn a higher wage through harder work they would decline?

    Easily one of the most ignorant statements I've ever seen made.

    Yeah interns tend to be unpaid because the experience they get. Most interns are still in school and it helps them build their resumes for once they graduate. Hell I had the chance to be a paid intern this summer and turned the money in exchange to going on lunch meetings and interacting more with people.

Comparing a young college kid going to school to a mature adult working minimum wage as their only source of income are two very different things.
    No, we very much cannot afford to work unpaid. The transformation of entry level jobs into unpaid internships is one of the big reasons why my generation is broke and in debt. We're expected to work for years without compensation for the privilege of then doing what used to be skilled salaried jobs for the same pay as forty years ago. And we only even get the internships after taking on tens of thousands of dollars of debt. The rise of unpaid internships is a HUGE problem, but it's a different problem than minimum wage.

    That's why there are no people with graduate degrees working minimum wage jobs. Oh wait, there are a lot. Or did you have some other kind of "improving yourself" in mind? It's always such a vague assertion. The reality is that a lot of people are more skilled than their jobs, a lot of skilled people are unemployed, and minimum wage workers work really hard. No matter how much people who have experienced good fortune want to pretend that they're special, they (we) are not. It's true of probably every person on this forum. Given the same opportunities we've had, most people would do just as well as us.

    A philosophy based on blame and self-aggrandizement will get us nowhere. No one but a tiny tiny few earn squalor.

    So everyone takes on the chin because these highly educated and skilled workers you speak of did not do market research on demand for their educations after leaving college? You know if you are stupid enough to major in art history and then bitch about the job market, that is on you.

    Do conservatives here support removal of minimum wage entirely?
