What Was The Minimum Wage When You Started Working? [POLL]
If you tell me yours, I'll tell you mine (but it might just give away my age!)
OK. Here' the deal. I used to work for my mother and father. They owned their own "mom and pop" store on Long Island. Minimum wage then? $1.25/hour (and they never paid me overtime) I kid you not. It was in the late '60's. What was yours?
I ask that because, according to the SILive.com, Governor Coumo in his State of the State address has proposed that the minimum wage be raised to $10.50/hour.
So does that mean we are that much farther ahead? Probably not. I bet you the cost of living went up 10 times just like the proposed wage, but it sure sounds good.
But back to the question - what was YOURS? Would love to know….
