It took over 35 years though. Where did it all go? I figure about $429,000 in taxes. Maybe $390,000 housing and heating. Here are some interesting breakdowns:
During these decades I made-
1970's $28,911------------------Highest annual $7,960
1980's $292,840---------------Highest annual $38,240
1990's $431,808----------------Highest annual $58,300
2000's $545,811 (so far)-----Highest annual $76,665
Interesting facts Presidential wise:
A Republican (Nixon) was in office during my least annual earnings.
A Democrat (Clinton) was in office during my highest annual earnings.
My annual wages never went over $8,000 during Ford's time in office.
When Carter was in office my annual wages went from $5,650 to $26,047.
It wasn't until the 3rd year of Reagan's term until I earned over $20,400!
My wages flat lined in Reagan's years from 84' to 88' from $32,797 to $34,809.
The Bush Sr. years saw my wages go from $38,240 to $37,682.
In Clinton's first year in I had an annual earning of $29,958. The next year $34,685. The next $40,676. I peaked out in 2000 at $76,665.
When Bush Jr. took office I was making $69,204. The next year I was at $56,546. The next $54,258. I bottomed out this last year at $45,299.
My longest unemployment stretches? Always with a Republican in office.
My workplace closed with a Chinese Company while, you got it, a Republican was in office.
And you wonder why I am a Democrat? For the good of my economic survival!
