No, but I would say they went to college with the intention of widening their career options instead of choosing fast food or a factory to work at.
And I'm sure they definitely had money in their sight, long-term.
Minimum wage CAN be a starting point, but most of the time it isn't. Most places who pay minimum wage don't have many opportunities for advancement.
Fast food - You could become a manager, maybe make $9-10
Retail - Starts off slightly above min. Doesn't top out too high
If your skills deserve a raise, you'll either get one, or you'll get smart and go somewhere else that will pay you what you deserve.
If you go into fast food or retail thinking you're going to make a career out, you better have damn good interpersonal skills and drive to climb that ladder, or you're just very naive.
It kinda goes without saying that you should be taking advantage of schooling as well. If you have a degree and are making min wage working at McDonald's, that's your own fault. Either you pursued a worthless degree, or you suck at job interviews.
It all comes back to the free market deciding what is "fair." If you're worth more than min wage, you will have the opportunity to earn more than min wage.
And of course, if our govt wasn't so loose with OUR money it wouldn't be so worthless, cost of living wouldn't be so high, and there wouldn't be any need to even discuss this unemployment-causing ruse of "minimum wage." But then again it would also be nice to shit rainbows and fly on magic carpets....
