    my niece works for minimum wage at a locally owned party store/pizza place. I watch her baby because she cannot afford to pay a sitter.

    Her hours today were 9 to 3. She had to be there at 8:30 to make sure things were stocked, clean, etc. She left there after 3:30 because she had to make sauce and the other side work necessary for the night shift. Add travel time and besides the wage theft, she in other circumstances would have to pay for 8 hours of child care when she is getting paid for 6.
