15. As I said, that's in real dollars

Wages and incomes are higher today than in 1973. Which was the question.

We're currently pushing (yes, me too) a minimum wage that at $15/hour puts every full time US worker in the top 1.5% worldwide. I think we should up it to $16 to just make it the literal 1% for rhetorical reasons if nothing else.

I support it, but we should be honest about what we're saying there.
