We've brought up the slow end of teens entering the work force. Now fast food can no longer find enough willing teens to be wage slaves. NY Times (paywalled): "A Fast-Food Problem: Where Have All the Teenagers Gone?"



The article points out that now, the average fast food wage is at $10.93 an hour. Here we see the first place that wage inflation will happen and put pressure on the economy!

In Montana and Wyoming, there were help wanted signs in the windows of every restaurant we saw.

The only teens that I see on a regular basis that want to work are my Landlord's kids. They both have other jobs and are always working around the apartments. Then there are the ones that only want enough money to buy the next video game.
But mostly around here there are older people working in the fast food places.

This summer, every member of my household is employed. First time ever, and it's awesome.

My 19 year old daughter is working in a county summer camp and is getting paid (more than my teacher wife btw) to hang out on rivers, mountain tops, and beaches in the area. Life's tough for her.

My 16 year old son is working with an electrician friend of ours, pulling wires and installing outlets, etc. Some of his time is unpaid, when the friend is bidding a job or whatever, but when they are working, he's getting $25/hr. Freaking awesome for a 16 year old.

I have respect of people working in food service. I've always like to see that on the resumes of entry level applicants. Shows they are willing to work hard. But I can't blame my kids for taking better paying jobs that are more interesting to them.

That really surprised me, I would never have guessed there is that much open space.

Net = minus income taxes, but not VAT, I assume.

VAT is on what you buy, like sales tax isn't it? Almost impossible to calculate because it depends of what they spend it on. Do hookers collect VAT?

Yes, but on every stage of production, not just the final sale to the customer.

Where they're legal, I assume so.
