    I enjoyed it although I really didn't need to read it. I have worked plenty minimum wage jobs during my lifetime.

    Like you my best experience believe it or not was food service. It was fast food and it was a chain. I made little but I knew I was valued. The mid level supervisors were almost always accomodating. They weren't making millions and knew we weren't making millions so having low turnover was basically about being nice to their employees. Oddly enough I made more at Walmart but did not nearly feel as happy but I think that has alot to do with management styles and behavior than the amount I made.
