U.S. Minimum Wage History

We need to remember this when we talk about things in a historical context ... you can say that things that are adjusted for inflation between say the '70's and now ... I think music is always a bargain myself , but disposable incomes are super low at the moment .

WE need to be sure we give the customer a great deal of value for their money ... It is a good thing that so many good folks still buy music !! Looking at the stats in the linked page and assuming that kids work most for minimum wages , I'm feeling a little humble that I was able to spend so much on music discovery when I was a pup .. ( thanks Columbia House !!)
