Not for nothing, but when you sell $80.00 jeans, you SHOULD be paying your employees more than minimum wage, and frankly, more than $10.00 an hour even.

The clothing retailer Gap announced Wednesday it will hike the minimum wage it pays its employees in the U.S. to $9 an hour in 2014 and $10 an hour in 2015.
