Wages

I was filling the Heep up with gas today at the local Cumberland Farms and noticed a help wanted sign “Starting pay $13 an hour”.
This made me think of Al Vermalia he was an old codger I worked with years ago. He used to tell me how easy I had it since when he started out at seventeen cents an hour back in the day.
When I started minimum wage was $2.65 and I got a raise a few weeks later when the state minimum went up. I’m starting to understand why that seemed so huge to Al and I think I might be the old codger now.

When I hit seventy how much will that dollar be worth then?
