I think not:
I went to work at a new job 30 years ago. (Retire 10 years now).
My pay then was 10% of what I get now.
For inflation to keep up, at $.59 for gas I would have to pay $.5.90.
My rent es $185, should be $1850 but my mortage is $700.
Cigarettes were $.50, I should pay $5 now but I pay half of that.
I use to pay $50 every two weeks for food so the grocery store would cash my payroll check, that would $1000 per month now, no way even I could eat that much food.
I'm not rich, but I get buy.
You throw out the economics part and lets see what happens.
I don't work at nothing but play at a lot of things.
I am closer to my God and family then I was 30 years ago.
I have a whole lot more friends.
Shoot I'm a billionire.
