To The Editor:

We have recently seen a lot of back and forth claims about Federal Minimum Wage.

Federal Minimum Wage in 1968 was $1.60 per hour. If you use an inflation calculator this would be slightly more than $12 per hour in 2021 dollars.

It seems to me that a minimum wage worker in 2021 would deserve at least as much compensation as a minimum wage worker in 1968.
