Wow, how many of you can remember being able to buy a delicious ice cream treat for a nickle? Those were indeed the good old days. Now, I know some will pipe up and say that people did not make much money back then, so things have not really changed. But I claim that they have changed. In the 1960's a man could work at a gas station, have a house, a car, and support a family of four. Now both husband and wife must work, and even then must have fairly good jobs to be able to maintain a car and a home. As prices and wages have increased, over time the workers have lost out.
