At $13 an hour, I would prefer to wait tables. I rather enjoyed the work
when I was in college. My sister makes almost that hourly at WalMart after
nearly 7 years.

It makes me sad that the agency thinks that accurate and complete product
information are only worth $13 an hour. But they'll get exactly what they
pay for. I'm guessing the agency is getting $40 an hour?
