No, this is the problem:
Nancy Salgado... has worked at a Chicago McDonald's for 10 years and makes $8.25 an hour
Making minimum wage at a fast food place after ten years is a choice. A choice made by Nancy Selgado. The company should not be forced to compensate her beyond her worth. That's ridiculous.
