A few months ago, my wife and I were driving back from having spent a weekend at a nice resort hotel in Asheville, NC, and we stopped at Wendy's to get a quick lunch. Yes, I know the food is bad for you there, but we so rarely get within miles of anything that might be called fast food. Anyway, this Wendy's had a lady who cleaned the tables, brought beverage refills to customers, talked nicely to everyone, and generally provided a load of service to customers who already had their food. When we left, I asked my wife how old she thought the lady was, and my wife guessed that she was at least 80. I guessed 80 to 85. She really could have been 90, becauase that's how old she looked and acted. Something is wrong when 80 to 90-year old ladies need to work for minimum wage at a fast food joint to make ends meet. I don't blame the government or anyone else, but it sure sucked to see her out there carrying drinks around for people who hardly knew she was there.
