This is a myth. Almost no full time adult employee is making minimum wage.
No, you are wrong.

In 2011 there were 74,000,000 workers making the Federal minimum wage. Of those 74,000,000 only 4,000,000 were under the age of 19. 53,500,000 of the 74,000,000 were full time.

You are correct. I did read that wrong.

3.8m minimum wage workers, about 3m are over 19 and 1.3m are full time.

So no job is a minimum wage job in your book?
