Until recently, minimum wage laws were usually very tightly focused. In the U.S. and Great Britain, for example, they applied only to women and children. Only after the Great Depression did many industrialized economies extend them to the general work force. Even then, the laws were often specific to certain industries. In France , for example, they were extensions of existing trade union legislation. In the U.S., industry specific wage restrictions were held to be unconstitutional.

The collapse of the new economy at the decade's end would generate economic debates as intense as the cultural conflicts of the early and mid-1920s. Americans in the 1920s were the first to wear ready-made, exact-size clothing. They were the first to play electric phonographs, to use ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

National Theft Database and its implication!!!? - Yahoo! Answers
I went shopping with my boyfriend, I pay for it with cash and the rest went on his card. A month later, I was notify to go to work one day.
