  • That is the saddest state of our economy. What you could buy for $45 dollars then, takes $301 today. Something like 700% increase. So stamps in the 60's was like what .04. So like a 1,000% increase in postage, and about the same or more for a gallon of gasoline. Wonder what that $45 will buy you in another 6 decades.

  • High school job reminded of my first job after rescieving by SS card at 14. I worked at Huff's Resturant from 7 am till 5 pm, 5 days a week during the summer. Took care of the gas pumps, carried food stock to kitchen, cut grass and raked the drive way and anything Mr or Mrs Huff ask. For this I was paid 2.00 per day in cash at the send of each day.

    The good old days.....

  • My high school job was at WSDM radio. I couldn't believe at the time that I made $6 an hour for my first job. Those were some really fun days. When I joined the Marines I made $600 a month before taxes, it's amazing the changes in the economy and pay scales. I also remember gas being 55cents a gallon too.
