Interesting. Maybe that's a benefit from having most of your employees making minimum wage.

$15/hr of course. Fill sodas/popcorn and <gasp> man the cash register? That should net you at least $20 per hour. We all know jobs meant to provide disposable income for pimple-faced teenagers should support a family.

I don't see that as a fair statement. Like any other job, if you don't like it, get another job. The estate is being extremely generous and giving back to the community, something they are not required to do. They surely don't deserve a thrashing with cheap commentary.

Seriously. Only online could a massive charitable donation get derailed into a minimum wage debate in seconds.

Saw that on the news. That's what I call giving back to the community. Damned nice of a man who kept us entertained all these years.

What time does Star Wars open tomorrow night? I hope they have crowd control at your theater so you don't get your feelings trampled.
