Started reading some of these posts again and had to smile at reading Frank Grant's earning $12 a week at his job at the market in 1942..

My first job was at the Balboa Theater in 1947-48, After getting promoted from Candy Girl to Cashier, my net pay was $12.25 a week. I banked $10 at the Bank of America on Balboa and 38th Ave and 'lived' on my $2.25 comfortably. It helped to be able to get in free to movies there, being an employee.
