Companies that expect a lot of work for paying minimum wage

I find it hilarious when I hear managers at fast food restaurants, retail stores, and where ever else they pay minimum wage complaining about not being able to find reliable employees. Minimum wage here in NH is federal so its $7.25 an hour. When someone is working 40 hours a week at that they need to go out and either work another job after their shift ends or panhandle for extra money. The amount you will make at McDonalds will pay for an apartment and your electric if your lucky. Feeding yourself and paying for gas and other bills you will need to find another source for that money.

When a company pays people minimum wage they need to expect people to not be reliable and to be there today gone tomorrow. If they get another job offer at more pay there's a good chance that you won't be getting a 2 weeks notice if the job is available immediately. People need to make more money then minimum wage not for things that they want but for things that they need. I also think its shameful to pay adults who need this pay to live $7.25 an hour.
