    a 79 year old, wiping tables and washing floors for 18 years, making $7.40/hr??

    Corporate America repeatedly demonstrates, over and over, the need to be regulated.  They cannot be trusted to do the right thing.  The only reason this guy makes more than he did in 1996 is because of the few raises in the minimum wage.

    They will pay people $0.50/hr.  They will hire 10 year olds.  They will make people work 12 hour days, seven days a week, if the law lets them.

    They deserve no more of our trust.  Finished.  You can't pay people right on your own?  You can't treat your employees with the respect and dignity they deserve without some kind of law telling you to?  Well tough shit - you will be told what to do and how to act.
