Leonard, still awkward in front of Penny, says she kind of acts like a carbohydrate delivery system at her job as a waitress at the Cheesecake Factory. Penny is not impressed and doesn't care because she gets minimum wage. The idea of earning minimum wage makes people not care as much about their job. This could be used to talk about the efficiency wage hypothesis or even reasons for and against raising the minimum wage.
