    Americans are making either the minimum wage or below the minimum wage. As for Margaret Lewis, technically she is making minimum wage, she is earning the Illinois' minimum wage of $8.25. Even with tips she still earns $10,000 below the federal poverty line.

    Also, as far as Margaret's job goes, it cannot be shipped south of the border or overseas for cheaper labor, it is an un-outsourcable position.
