3Morgan Nash's curator insight, October 11, 2015 12:18 AM

Inflation - Americans are not making as much as they use to after you account for inflation. In 1968, the United States was $1.60 can hour, but using the inflation calculator that the Bureau of labor statistic provides $1.60 in 1968 in equivalent to $10.74 today. If you were to work a full-time job at $10.74 an hour for a full year (with two weeks off for vacation), you would make about $21,480 for year. According to Social Security Administration, 40.28% of all workers making less then $20,000 a year in America. I did not realize 40 percent of all United States  workers actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.
