    Your link doesn't show a third of America making less than $1.40 an hour.

    Why did you arbitrarily pick 1968?

    Let's pick another year for shits and grins..............

    How about 1948:


    How about picking other arbitrary years to track the minimum wage and inflation? If you used 1948 instead of 1968, the minimum wage’s inflation-adjusted value would only be $3.81 an hour.
    Funny how you can use numbers, huh Sport?

    Why did you have to ask someone else such a simple question?

    See post above.

    None of that negates the fact that the American worker has taken an ass beating on wages over the last 50 years. The middle class has shrunk and the wealth of the nation has been flushed to the 1%....and Trump has done nothing but exacerbate the problem...
