    these jobs go from after school and weekend jobs for teens to jobs for people with families.  You rarely see teens doing working in fast food these days.  Many good paying manufacturing, labor intensive, and entry level jobs do not exist anymore.  The USA has become more "service" oriented and these jobs can not be outsourced easily.  We need to raise minimum wage to a living wage where you don't need to get public assistance because all of us are paying for it and these companies get refunds instead of paying taxes.
