If a person is incapable of providing $15 per hour of of value to a company, then they are probably adding negative value (i.e. -$5/hour) they're essentially unemployable. As Tallest Skil astutely implied on post 71 above, their job can be performed by a robot. Their well being is a social issue. (and they can get a job at my local post office) Also, Interns should be paid.
