5&10¢ Worth of Job and Career Headlines

5&10 Cents Worth of Job and Career Headlines, October 15, 2014 - RF CafeThe numbers 5 and 10 were prominent in today's search for career enhancement articles so I decided to make it this week's theme in regard to the value of advice offered. 5¢ today buys what 2¢ bought in 1980, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) Inflation Calculator, and 10¢ is the equivalent of 2¢ in 1970. The idiom about "adding my two cents worth" of opinion or advice goes way back to Biblical times, but the Inflation Calculator only reaches back to 1917, at which time 2¢ would buy 48¢ worth of goods. You can see in the above chart how wildly inflation extremes have swung in the U.S. all the way back to 1666 (the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth in 1620). Note that when a person adds his 2¢ worth, it is usually unsolicited. Can you remember the old 5&10¢ stores? I can.
