  4. Skip some or all ice, and use frozen fruit. This saves time and is more filling.

  5. Frozen juice concentrate is much easier to keep on hand than fresh juice.

If you find yourself in a job paying at or near the minimum wage, here's a nugget of wisdom: your hard-earned dollars should stay yours.

Employers legally can not dock your pay for uniforms, steel-toe boots, missing cash, stolen meals, damages, or any other surprise expenses. By law, you're entitled to receive at least the minimum wage, untarnished by such deductions.

It's not just a suggestion—it's your right. So, next time you clock in, rest easy knowing your paycheck should reflect the minimum wage, no strings attached.


You can now win any game of hangman you play, as long as you are the one picking the word.
