A worker in manufacturing today earns an average wage of $39,688 (including overtime). Back in 1970, that same worker would have earned a wage of only $6,685. But don’t feel sorry for that worker. The cost of living was so much lower in 1970 that this wage was equivalent to $37,576 in today’s dollars.
