Annualized income if you worked for minimum wage in 1968 equivalent 2012 dollars:$21,140
Federal minimum wage in 2012 real: $7.25
Annualized income if you're working for 2012 minimum wage: $14,500

Things that make you go hmmm....
Should factor that to how many married couples had women that either didn't work (it was socially acceptable before i get pounded) or didn't work full time or worked full time but didn't make as much as the husband.

Im not even saying your wrong and im not going to do the research just that its apples and oranges in my opinion.
