Some employees of Virginia’s fast food restaurants say they can’t survive on their minimum age jobs. Workers at a burger joint in Arlington took a break from serving food Thursday to complain about their pay. Shemethia Butler says she feels trapped in a low paying job. The National Federation of Independent Business says this is a bad time for restaurant workers to issue demands. It says employers are wrestling with health care issues, and new regulations. The minimum wage has been $7.25 per hour since July 2009.
