Workers were glad to get 50 Cents an hour back in the day. Because of the Depression, it was not until WW II that wages took off. But it was in 1960 that min. wage was still only a meager $1 an hour.

Today, a living wage should be around min. $25 per hr. in big cities.

I pay $15 per hour for a kid to sweep the floor and take out the trash in 2020.
Plus a free meal and transportation, that I provide.

Hey, times change eh?
