I thank you all for those comebacks. Well said. Regarding “low” “dollar” denominated pay scales in other countries, they may not actually be low, depending on the costs in other countries.

I just heard tonight, during the revolutionary war, nurses were hired at $2 per MONTH. It MAY have been a very lucrative salary related to costs. Imagine the high value of the Penny? It would explain the half penny coins.

Nowadays the entire dollar of 100 pennies (5 slices of bread) buys nothing. A tiny small dollar broken down into microscopic pennies is senseless today. All final purchases at the super market, gas station, etc should be rounded off to the nearest 5 slices of bread, or one dollar.

People suggesting eliminating the penny or nickel are not thinking deep enough or realistic.
