    It varied depending on the job and industry, but a general hand at the wharves was paid a minimum of £3/13/ for a 44 hour week.

    It’s as much as I earn now..

    I wonder how much $$ the driver of this Ball Collector makes per week at the Greenland Country Club. LOL

  4. If we raised the minimum wage to $1000/hr, we’d all be millionaires in no time!

    Wow, immagine if you had managed to save ten times your yearly salary to retire on at 55 and managed to set it aside in a box for your great great grandchild. They would receive the grand total of about 8,000.00 AUD.
    Now if you had bought gold at the time then….

    The drought, the heat, the fires, the extreme weather have all taken their toll this year.

      The slight olive decline is from Sacramento bureaucrats restricting water allocations to farmers… nothing to do with the weather (climate).

    The real quote was 8 million Italian bayonets. The word Italian is left out. It was from Benito Mussolini, the fascist leader.

    “$100 placed at 7 percent interest compounded quarterly for 200 years will increase to more than $100,000,000 — by which time it will be worth nothing.”
