I find it fascinating

     I find it fascinating that fast-food places will say that they pay "competitive wages." I actually still seen some signs making the claim. Now, I remember back when I worked in fast-food. They paid minimum wage and called it "competitive." Getting the labor inspectors off your back does not constitute paying a competitive wage.
     A nice thing about the place I am working at now is that they post the federally and state mandated posters in the break room where everybody can see them. I realize that, officially, that's the law. But when I worked in fast-food they were displayed in the bottom of the manager's locked desk drawer. I think I saw them once.
