Also, we are paid to educate ourselves =)
And not, it's not a loan.
However, you can choose to get a study loan but it has the lowest rates possible - it's one of the cheapest loans to apply for and doesn't cripple you financially for decades to come.

However, you get a lot for your taxes. Healthcare, education, pension, financial aid to students (800 USD for students not living at home, pursuing an education past high-school) are funded thusly. There are a few benefits I am not mentioning. So, while the taxes are high (which is what arguably makes a burger King worker in Denmark earn more than their US counterparts) the system makes it so that it evens out some differences in our society.
In terms of wage... Yes, no minimum, but paying someone below 110 (16.6 USD) kroner per hour is rare. Mainly this is because the unions could act upon this very quickly... And they normally do if it is brought to their attention.
So yes, the problem in the US is a systemic one. And while the comparison to Denmark isn't the wisest, it also highlights the differences in welfare and quality of life. Definitely not all of it can be chucked up to corporate greed... It not about capitalism, but how the government protects its most vulnerable.

Honestly it's the system here in Denmark.
So firstly, for the pension: everyone in Denmark, who has lived in the country 40+ years since the age of 15 until 65, has the right to full pension. If you live alone, it is 2000 dollars a month (before taxes) and 1480 dollars a month if you are still with your spouse/partner. If you haven't lived in Denmark for the 40 years within the time frame, you can still be afforded part of that amount, spending on various factors (citizenship, years in Denmark, other pensions etc.)
Now, as for taxes, things get a bit complicated here. I still have some Danish friends who still don't quite. In Denmark you have a trækprocent and a fradrag. A trækprocent is the percentage you pay in taxes.,normally this is 38-40 %. Fradrag is the money this trækprocent is not applied to. The fradrag advantages decrease the higher your income becomes, however this is because Denmark doesn't have a flat tax. However it still is considered relatively high

When I lived in Asia, we would have a lot of snails on the road come rain. Me and my mom would go for walks to move them so they wouldn't get killed. If I see a snail in the middle of the street I still move them, especially if there's a high chance they'll get driven over.

That's not completely true :p
I went to the Galeria dell'Accademia in Florence and the explanation they present is much more normal. Basically someone carved the feet and didn't finish, so he just carved the rest to his design. Not that much drama to it XD
