I hate to pull this card, I REALLY do, but this is exactly why the meme of "ok boomer" exists. First off lets look at minimum wage:
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/30/Timeline_of_federal_minimum_hourly_wage_for_nonfarm_workers_for_the_United_States._And_inflation-adjusted.gifthis is a 2020 updated graph, as the min wage for fed is still 7.25 but it is increasing in state local laws.
You where able be sucessful being a high school drop out because of the time. NOW if you drop out, you be hard pressed to get anywhere. We are now expected to be in collage. Even some police and fire like my city requires some collage level education. The demand for such things was much lower then. Furthermore you have less supply of low skill jobs where you can get away with being a high school drop out in modern times. It is mostly automated and other things. So you really can't compare this to now. (You had a higher minimum wage then vs now, keep this in mind) Also It seems you are missing the point of the post completely. It is basically posting a one sided view based on misinformation how taxes work saying it is not up to the rich to pay more in taxes because they are rich.
And I explained a few times how the taxes work and why it is fair and the issues with big businesses paying ZERO in taxes because of the loop holes they exploit. (in some cases the government pays them =/)
