When I first graduated from high school, I took a job that paid $1.17 per hour. Sounds like low pay - right?

But I could go to a bank and get silver dollars. A silver dollar today is just below $40 federal reserve notes.

So, was I working too cheap - or by today's standards very well paid?

There was no sales taxes, and income tax was very low. A new car was barely over $1,000.

A married man might typically earn $2.50 per hour and his wife stayed at home. Children had manners and respected their elders. Teachers taught the basics and civics classes were more factual although the lies were creeping in already then.
