THE DAWN OF A NEW DEAL FOR THE COMMON PERSON...
The HufPo article says minimum wage in 1968 was $1.60 per hour; TODAY'S equivalent would make that $10.74, adjusted for inflation…So when people can't understand why the discontent minimum wage workers can't make it on today's minimum wage...they don't get this simple fact...their head is stuck back in 1968...not a bad year! Great year for music and you could actual afford to buy it back then...Different reality, different cost of living and a system (today) that is rigged to make the working people of this country, economic sharecroppers and where the few at the top of this (current) economic pyramid dream of the total return of true Feudalism (economic slavery).
So, campers, anyone who uses that fact minimum wage was $1.60 without factoring in the cost of living/inflation/purchasing power is making a fake argument...IT JUST AIN'T TRUE...Put your hand on your wallet and run...! Seattle raises minimum wage to $15 an hour
