Before you think, $.58 per hour, is TERRIBLE!
Based on the ‘historic standard of living’ the $.58 per hour would be equivalent to $7.81 per hour in 2014 dollars.
The Federal Minimum wage is currently $7.25 – NOW that’s TERRIBLE!

A French tourist listened to her heart when she offered her pizza to a man spotted rummaging through trash in the streets of New York, not realizing it was Richard Gere making a movie.
Karine Valnais Gombeau, a 42-year-old Parisian, spotted the actor, a knit cap pulled down over his ears, sifing through rubbish as she came out of a pizzeria near Grand Central station in Manhattan, with her husband and 15-year-old son, the New York Post reported Sunday.
Without blinking, Gere, 64 asked her what was in the bag Gombeau offered him.
“I tried to tell him in English, but it came out half in French,” she told the Post.
“I said, ‘Je suis desolee [I am sorry], but the pizza is cold.’?”
“He said, ‘Thank you so much. God bless you,’? she said.
She left without knowing it was Gere making his new movie “Time Out of Mind,” until the Post ran a photo of the moment two days later.

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his girlfriend that he doesn’t want her to bring black people to his games or post pictures with black people on Instagram, according to unverified audio obtained by TMZ.
The tape begins in the middle of an argument between Sterling and his girlfriend, V. Stiviano. Sterling appears to be upset that Stiviano, who is BLACK and Mexican, has been posting photos to Instagram of herself with black people — in particular, with Magic Johnson.
“It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people,” he is heard saying. “Do you have to?”
Stiviano says that all she did was take a picture with someone she admires. “I think the fact that you admire [Magic] — I’ve known him well, and he should be admired,” Sterling replies. “And I’m just saying that it’s too bad you can’t admire him privately. And during your ENTIRE FUCKING LIFE, your whole life, admire him — bring him here, feed him, fuck him, I don’t care. You can do anything. But don’t put him on an Instagram for the world to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games. OK?”
