GOOD QUESTION. I will be checking around for other people's definition but my basics are below but hopefully others will add their comments.


a. Obviously someone who gets paid the minimum wage in a particular jurisdiction.
b. Often a person like a student doing a first job or someone who cannot find a decent paying job.
c. A person without the drive to improve himself or herself, i.e. a loser.
d. Person of low esteem.
e. An inferior person.

I work at a minimum wage job serving coffee etc AND going to the U of T in Mississauga AND I resent people saying we are losers because we haven't got government style jobs with generous fringe benefits and pensions reserved for the fortunate few.

I agree with the original poster. People do not have to settle for the bottom of the barrel. We have to develop an ambition and say no to substandard offers (except in very special circumstances and only temporarily). My philosophy is that one has to pervere long enough to get out from the rut and then to look for opportunities to improve.

To me a min wager is some useless tit who cannot find or hold a real job and naturally is lacking in what it takes to be successful

I would NEVER accept a minimum wage job. Put simply its beneath me because I am worth more.



My good friend Rita has not one but two graduate degrees. From fine, storied universities. Surprise, surprise: the only “job” she was able to find was at a retail store.

Hey—it’s only minimum wage, but at least she’s working, right? And at a major-league, blue-chip company, An American icon; an institution; a name every man, woman, and child in this country knows; an historic company that rings of the American Dream the world over, besides. Surely, if nothing else, it’s a start.

Perhaps you’re right. Maybe it isn’t the start she always dreamed of…but at least it is one. If so…then awaits her at the finish?

What is Rita’s job like? Her sales figures are monitored…by the microsecond. By hidden cameras and mics. They listen to her every word; they capture her every movement; that track and stalk her as if she were an animal; or a prisoner; or both. She’s jacked into a headset that literally barks algorithmic, programmed “orders” at her, parroting her own “performance” back to her, telling her how she compares with quotas calculated…down to the second…for all the hundreds of items in the store…which recites “influence and manipulation techniques” to her…to use on unsuspecting customers…that sound suspiciously like psychological warfare. It’s as if the NSA was following you around……and it was stuck in your head…telling you what an inadequate failure you were…psychologically waterboarding you…all day long…every day for the rest of your life.

Mara’s boss sits in the back. Monitoring all twelve, or fifteen, or twenty people that work in the store. On a set of screens. Half camera displays, half spreadsheets; numbers blinking in real-time. Glued to it like a zombie. Chewing slowly with her mouth open. Jacked into a headset. A drone-pilot… piloting a fleet of human drones…pressure-selling disposable mass-made shit…as if it were luxury yachts…through robo-programmed info-warfare…like zombies…to other zombies…who look stunned…like they just got laser blasted, cluster-bombed, shock-and-awed…

WTF?

It’s bananas. The whole scene is like a maximum-security mental asylum designed by sadomasochists in a sci-fi movie. If Jeffrey Dahmer, Rasputin, and Michael Bay designed a “store” together, they couldn’t do any better. Her “job” will begin to drive her crazy—paranoid, depressed, deluded—in a matter of years if she continues doing it. No human psyche can bear that kind of relentless, systematic abuse.

Now. Note what all the technology and bureaucracy that wonderful, noble company has invested hundreds of millions in doesn’t ask her to do. Learn. Think. Reflect. Teach. Inspire. Lead. Connect. Imagine. Create. Grow. Dream. Actually…serve customers. Heaven forbid. It just beats her over the head,

I like the bit about "worth more"! What makes you think you are better than people who work honestly at what little they get.
