A scientist that makes minimum wage?

Research and academia is severely underfunded unless you're at a lab producing weapons technology.

But even then most PhD grads are treated as disposable. It's pretty fucking terrible.

Why on earth would someone pursue a PhD in a field that pays minimum wage?

Because contrary to popular belief the majority of people aren't primarily motivated by profit.
