Back in those days you could buy a whole brisket for $.89/pound.
Prices just aren't what they used to be.

And wages are higher, too. Food costs in general are quite low,
even if meat prices have increased a lot in the past few years.


Cindy Hamilton


wages are higher for some people


Wages are higher for everybody. Not as much at the bottom end
as the top, of course.

Do you have an example of someone making less money for the
same work now compared to 10 years ago?

no. what I meant was that rising costs are out stripping the rising
costs of food for many people on the bottom portion of the wage scale.
I do not mean to start an argument about it

Sound like I was basically agreeing with you. People at the bottom
are suffering, but more because of factors that aren't rising food
prices.

When I graduated high school the minimum was was $1.55. Adjusted for
inflation, today it would be $10.41 Obviously, many states did not keep
up.

If you've been in the workforce for a number of years, plug in some
numbers to see how well you've fared over the years.

Most of the highly paid skilled trades jobs no longer exist in the
US... most jobs in the US are now low paid desk driving jobs - answer
the phone and know nothing faker jobs.
