  • Note: My mom and I were looking through some notes and found one from my great grandpa Ed that was written to my Uncle Dave.
    The crash of the stock market was our beginning of our great depression. People got scared so they took money out of the bank, and jobs were hard to find. People were charging their groceries and paying the grocer back when they had money. Milk was 79 cents per 100 pounds. Milk was traveled by horse and wagons to the nearest cheese factory.
    My great grandpa bailed hay for $1.00 a day and meals. He worked starting at six in the morning until the owner said he could stop. In 1933, he got a job at the paper mill. It paid 39 cents per hour. Back in those days if you made 25 dollars a week, that was a big pay check. Usually their pay check paid 15-18 dollars a week.
    Today we're lucky that we make more money and are paid more.
