STUART VARNEY (HOST, FOX BUSINESS): Forgive me for using strong language, but I think this is a tragedy. We will never know how many thousands or millions of youngsters do not get their start in the workplace because they've been priced out of it. We're pricing out entry-level jobs. You know, there's no such thing as an entry-level job any longer. If you've got a job, it has to pay for a family of four, it's got to be a living wage.
Well, what about those people that want to get in on the ground floor, learn a few skills, they're prepared to take a lower price per hour just to get in and get started? It's a tragedy that those people will not be getting those jobs. What a shame.
