This NYT editorial makes the important point that the problem isn't low wage jobs per se, it's low wage jobs that lack any opportunity for advancement. It's one thing to be a fry cook who can advance to manager, another thing to be a fry cook who has no career advancement possibilities.

Bet a lot of people wish they could pick lettuce for $50/hour, my friends, career advancement possibilities or not.
