The Good Old Days

It's easy to just put this in the "math is hard" column, but I think it's more that (some) members of a certain generation fail to realize just how good they had it. Obviously that era (particularly the earlier part) wasn't so hot for women and it definitely wasn't so hot for minorities, but, yes, the minimum wage was basically at its peak from 1956-1980 and also, too, public higher education was affordable.
