Poster Girl for Minimum Wage

This woman was the yahoo editor's choice to represent the minimum wage for a recent story about the raising of the federal minimum wage.

Not my first choice.

And how does she feel? Getty Images gives her a few hundred dollar buy out per photo, and one day you're the poster child for the working poor.

Was it the broom? The apron? The non minority look of her?

What's up with that broom anyway?

We'll never know.


  1. We need to get her in our commercials. That kind of star power would make this blog the most popular blog ever.

  2. Were they trying to be stereotypical without being racist?
