    Despite the spots of negativity here and there, there plenty of us, a majority probably, across the spheres to "demand" well and relentlessly...it's that damn "organize" step that's sticky.

    Also there should be a public metric of time cos keep each employee on minimum wage. Minimum wage, hell, even an unpaid internship can be withstood, but only for a week or a month...long enough to prove you're worth keeping. Any co that wants an employee to stay should be paying far more than minimum wage otherwise disgrace in the eyes of the public should be expected. If a co is the only employer in town and keeps employees at minimum wage then they're just as disgraceful. Transparency is no substitution for a decent living wage but it's of value.
