If only wages would keep up with prices. When I finally made it up to $20 an hour, double what I started out at, then everyone started paying a starting salary at $20 an hour. So now what? Technically I'm back at a starting salary.
Yeah, McDonalds is no longer the value it used to be. I've been doing BOGO footlongs at Subway more frequently now, which still isn't very often.

The Bolt is more expensive than ever now. Back in 2020, you could pick one up for ~$23k brand new.

My dad suffered the same fate. Started at Safeway at a decent wage, and it never went anywhere.

Entry level jobs are always entry level. Just because people now have a useless degree doesn't mean the entry level job has changed any.
