*When considering desirable careers, fast food usually doesn't appear on high on the list, but that might change. Southern California fast food chain In-N-Out Burger recently revealed that its store managers, on average, earn more than $160,000 a year.

Saru Jayaraman, director of UC Berkley's Food Research Center, said, "In-N-Out is just eons above everybody else. On wages and benefits, they really are the best large chain."

Managers at In-N-Out oversee only one location and are responsible for all aspects of the facility, from training workers to ensuring the location is kept clean.

Workers at the chain start out at $13 an hour -- $2 over California's minimum wage -- and can work their way up the ladder to a managerial position that pays about $160,000, even without a college degree.

Person Who Hit The False Alert In Hawaii Isn’t Cooperating With Feds - 

As moves are made for it to never happen again, the person who scared Hawaii isn’t talking.

Congress wants to make sure that a false ballistic missile alert, like the warning that sent Hawaii into a panic earlier this month, does not happen again. The Senate Commerce Committee held a hearing yesterday on the country's emergency alert systems.

FCC Commissioner Lisa Fowlkes said her agency is working to identify any vulnerabilities to false alerts in the U.S. and do what is necessary to fix them. Meanwhile, the Hawaii state worker who sent the false missile alert is not cooperating with investigators.

The chief of an FCC bureau says the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency is cooperating fully. But her panel is disappointed that the person who sent the message in the first place is not. A spokesman with the Defense Department says that worker is not cooperating on the state's end, either. The employee was reassigned after the mistake, but has reportedly been on sick leave since then.

Trump: Mueller Firing Story Is Fake News - 

President Trump says a report that he ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] to be fired last June is "fake news."

The "New York Times" report we told you about earlier said that Trump wanted Mueller fired, but backed down after his White House counsel threatened to resign rather than follow the order.

Trump was asked about the Mueller report as he arrived at the World Economic Forum in Davos this morning and dismissed it saying “Fake news, folks. Fake news. Typical New York Times fake stories.”

Between the Mueller investigation and the Congressional investigations over 40 people have been interviewed.

Fire In South Korea Hospital Leaves Some Dead And Many Injured - 

A fire that started in the emergency room of a South Korean hospital has killed at least 37 people.

There is no sprinkler system at Sejong Hospital and that allowed the blaze to spread through the building’s first floor by the time fire fighters arrived. Around 130 people were injured in the country’s biggest fire in a decade.

At least 177 people, most elderly, were in the building at the time. President Moon Jae-In called an emergency meeting to make sure those affected are taken care of. There is no word on the cause of the fire.

FBI Kills Hostage During Raid - 

An investigation is underway after a kidnap victim was shot dead by an FBI agent.

The story began when two gunmen burst into the victim’s house Wednesday morning demanding money. The man and his 12-year-old son were restrained, but later the victim was kidnapped and the boy left there.

Police were called and then the FBI after it was suspected a drug cartel was behind the crime. The federal agency tracked the victim to a house in Houston, and that’s where he was shot by an agent. No one else was injured and there were children in that home at the time.

Police now believe it was not a cartel, but someone familiar with the dead man. The agent is on administrative leave and both the FBI and local police are investigating. No explanation of why the shooting happened was given.
