Original message: David Kopel needs to update his perception of people working in the fast food business. Saying that fast food workers are entry-level workers with no skills is a misconception he went on to use as a justification against a higher minimum wage. Kopel is apparently not aware that since the Great Recession, the age, the work experience, and the education level of fast food workers has gone UP because older, more experienced, more educated people are having to take these jobs. I think people like Kopel should get a job in fast food (on the night or weekend shifts) and see how long they would be satisfied making the current minimum wage. Seems like it is always the better-off people (those who don't have to live off the minimum wage) are the ones who are dead set against raising it for anyone else.
