For when you encounter something that just makes you go "huh?" and "that can't be right...", but it's made by professionals, and professionals are never wrong, right? This is the thread for when you want to be sure you're not being gaslit by major companies, institutions, governments, and other organizations.
For example, I was browsing twitter the other day night
just now, and, within the context of a tweet promoting raising the minimum wage, I came across this picture.
And I was thinking... That can't be right, can it? Or rather, it's poorly explained. Because it seems like the takeaway is that the minimum wage back then was worth less than the minimum wage of today? Shouldn't inflation make the old minimum wage be worth more than today's minimum wage? I'm so confused, and in my confusion, I may have said something wrong on twitter.
