Yeah, only 25% below what would be a real minimum wage.

Some people that actually need those $10/hour jobs would think your pretentious donkey was pretty inconsiderate.

And while $10 may be the starting pay, obviously it will afford those with a good work ethic an opportunity to grow and earn more money.

I believe Amazon has claimed publicly the average pay before overtime is $15/hour, which is about $30k/year for a job that does not require a college degree (or maybe even a high school diploma I honestly don't know). I know this may be hard to believe, but there are actually a fair amount of people that fit this demographic around here.

$15/hr would be the equivalent of about 60% more than I started out making in my first "real" job as a college drop out at 22.  I didn't work for those wages very long.  I had a good understanding if I did entry-level work quite well, I'd prove myself and improve my income commensurately.  Setting an artificial floor or expecting there are people who cannot improve beyond a minimum wage doesn't help the business and it doesn't really help the employee when society's expectations are that low.
