minimun wage

Bob,
I lived and worked in Hamilton County from 199-2006. At $10.50 an hour I supplemented with savings,etc to support myself.
Many resorts & restaurant managers would bring in students from Russia and Europe for the summer on "work/Visa"
scenerios. They could pay them LESS than minimum wage AND not have to abide by OSHA or other employment rules.
It was outrageous to see that happen and somewhat understand the employer's tricks to scirt the EEO Laws.
THe school & town & state Taxes were crushing, and food & gas were always higher than Monroe County's.
Thanks,
Lynne from Pittsford
