Tom Woods on entry level jobs and mindset behind minimum wage laws

When you have an entry-level job anyone can be trained to do in an hour, you're not in a strong bargaining position.

The point of an entry-level job isn't to make a career out of it, much less try to support a household on it. It's to give you experience and an opportunity to hit the first rung of the employment ladder.

Or it's to give you an income while you learn a skill in your spare time -- an option the Internet has made simpler than ever.

When only one company, and no one else in the world, thinks you're worth even minimum wage, be thankful for that. If you must be angry, be angry at everyone who refused to hire you at all. Why be angry at the one place that did?
