80% of men were employed then.
65% of men employed now.

That means if just 16% of women (who make up roughly 50% of the population) are employed, a higher percentage of the population is employed now.

I thought the current unemployment rate is somewhere around 11%, which means 89% of male and female potential employees are employed where in 1950 only 40% of male and female potential employees were employed. (I know, there were females employed at the time, but if they want to pretend, I can too).

Looks like redistribution of wealth was pretty active back in 1950.

When I read the headline I thought AFA was referring to the American Film Association. (I know, it's Institute) I thought, "Hmm, makes sense, pretty much all of the top films of all time are from the that era."

Yeah, back when blacks were getting sprayed with firehoses for thinking they could go to the same schools as whites

In the 1950's the AFA was lamenting the terrible changes in America since the country's glory years of the roaring '20's.

Boundless ignorance. The gift that keeps on taking.

Also: A nice chart with inflation adjusted fuel prices 1950 - 2006.
