I second Everything you have said Babs.well said babs! I have to say that i wouldn't get out of bed for minimum wage, it shocks me that an employer would openly say that they pay their staff minimum wage because they can't afford anymore when at the same time talking about opening another salon. One word springs to mind...GREED!!
I love what i do but when you are feeling exploited its not all about the job and anyone only takes so much.A beauty business is only as good as its therapists, the businesses that survive and become increasingly successful like any business are the ones that look after their staff and recognise their hard work and let them share in their profits by providing good working conditions and decent wages.
