Protesting about paying the minimum wage in entry-level jobs makes me think people want to make a career out of such work, without focusing on what they should concentrate on: education and grades.
I think work at fast-food places should be legally treated as entry-level work, and such employment should be exempt from minimum wage laws. Entry-level positions are in fact apprentice or intern work, where work skills are learned.
If people think they are worth $15 an hour, I recommend they look at their education and grades before they demand entry-level jobs be treated as careers. Good-paying jobs require higher education with passing grades (above a C average).
