I'm sorry but that's not really the issue here. They aren't trying to give anyone a raise, they want employers to pay minimum wage to people who work for them. You see, free market systems don't really have a magical hand guiding them to the best possible outcome every time. In this case, companies need a nudge to pay their interns because job markets have made experience more valuable than the degree the students just earned. Otherwise students jump on the opportunity to become near indentured servants, if it means they might get hired on for pay later on.
Also, statistics are often manipulated to suggest correlations where there are none.
I have a feeling that if you adjusted those numbers for the distribution of Toyota owner's ages, the numbers would look more reasonable. I'm not trying to say age is not a factor, just mentioning there are other variables influencing that research.
Drive by wire is great and all, but I'd feel much better with a physical fail-safe than their "infallible" software. I am aware of the physical remedies for the issue, but I'd like to see the brake pedal override the accelerator.
