Thats something else Chris, the wages you will get paid for your work is usually a disgrace. At least for your first job.
I looked it up and was surprised to see my state is only US $6.15, the lowest of 50. We do have one of the best welfare programs to offset it, but that pretty much eliminates a self sustaining honest living for many.
