The majority of American employers *pay* the absolute minimum required to
get the labor they want. (Do you think there's a connection, Andrew?)

Are we supposed to admire this man? He is a fool. If he has a family, then
his long hours will never repay him anything remotely worth what he is
losing. (If he does not have a family, then his work is his family and his
friends, so he's not working 15 hours/day, he's semi-working and
semi-recreating 15 hrs/day.)
