There is a quote in the movie "Book of Eli" that is very appropriate here.Being paid a minimum wage to be a toilet cleaner is just fine in my book. You are an unskilled worker being paid an unskilled wage. With the money you have, you cannot live a lavish lifestyle, but you can feed yourself and provide shelter for yourself. If you are trying to feed a family of 4, you cannot. If you want to drive a fancy car, you also cannot. It is called MINIMUM for a reason. You want more than the minimum? You need to bring something to the table besides a minimum skill. Learn how to repair that toilet and you will be paid accordingly."People had more than they needed. We had no idea what was precious and what wasn't. We threw away things people kill each other for now."
