"There is not much you would want to know. Many Elves keep other races as maids, nannies, chefs, or groundskeepers, and they do not pay well. In Ji, the minimum wage only applies to Elves. There is a controversy going on right now regarding that law and whether it should stay. My parents own a human named Laura, and she does all of our housework and cooking. They do not pay her too well, so sometimes I sneak her money from my own allowance.
"I do not like to think about it too much. I think it started with our booming economy. The money turned many of us into snobs, and then, when we started needing housekeepers, Elves were too expensive to hire. The only logical thing to some Elves was to get around the minimum wage law by hiring beings of other races."
