How many workers are permanently 'tied to the bottom'? Doesn't experience, hard work and being a good employee by definition raise the boat?

A fast-food manager once told me that the starting wage in her store was above minimum wage, and anyone hired there who managed to not quit or get fired for six months, and stayed longer than that, was either bucking for a management post or an idiot - because that documented work history was enough to get a better job elsewhere.
