    Yabbutt in 1955 I was working for $1 an hour and some days took home $8 for a full day of hot, backbreaking labor.

      as Mr. Roberts posted on another thread, here's a inflation calculator: http://inflationdata.com/Inflation/I...Calculator.asp

      in my first year in college (1973), i was paid $1.53 hr. ($1.65 minimum wage minus 12 cents an hour for food/sodas while at work) at a "Taco Bell" type imitator in so-cal. i sure as heck ate/drank much more than the $0.12hr worth!!!

        Here are a couple real life examples of repair costs, one from the late 60s and one from the early 70s.
