Not for the past 25 years, but I have friends that still do. I had been working minimum wage since the 1980s until I graduated from college and started my unstable career. I bettered my skills and job hopped instead of continually begging for more hours.

Friends in their 70s and 80s who have to thanks to the stock market meltdown of 2007. I know of entire industries that work full time minimum wage- one big one here in Oregon is gas station attendants, the ultimate fallback position.
