This is a great reason for minimum wage to remain low. I mean why should I pay an EMT more than minimum wage? His ability to administer medical need to dying people is not desirable at all. Even worse are those Pharmacy Technicians. I mean any idiot knows what Phenoxymethylpenicillin is. They don't need to be paid a lot for that. Don't forget those lazy Amusement Park Ride operators. Who doesn't want to go to an amusement park, enjoy the summer sun or a nice cold fall evening all while controlling the fate of 10 to 20 people on a metallic joy device capable of reaching high speeds on decades old constructions? If they want more money they should get one of those better jobs that no one is taking where people's lives are not at stake.
Great point. If you're trying to support a family, you need to get a job that pays enough to support that family. The minimum wage is there to keep those 14 year old Pre School Teachers from being exploited, not to make up for one's personal inability.
Another great reason. If Hotels paid their bellhops and desk workers too much money, they wouldn't be able to keep their doors open. If those workers can't manage to provide adequate food or shelter so that they are healthy enough to continue performing their duties, they can be replaced with more suitable workers. The only people who would be able to pay such a high wage are large companies with insane profits.
