Hmmmm..."fixed income"....exactly what is it?
"Boomer speak" for social security/retirement.
That source of income that sees a 3% increase every year while the cost of medical coverage increases by more each month than the 3% increase gets you.

Hahaha! What was your wage way back when, Hal? How many hours did it take to make 20 bucks after taxes, in the days of yore?
I see where you're going here JimBob & while it does have some merit, I did start at $2 something an hour - but - unlike the current push to raise minimum wage - everyone understood you worked our way out of the minimum wage pit.

Within a few years of my entry into the full time job market in 1970 - my income had almost doubled.
