Back then I bought and sold cars and got married, all well making $2.50 hr. Got a new job making $3.12 and had enough left over to build a 65 Barracuda race car......with the wife's blessing no less!

Would you believe I blew it up after several drag races, and I had better luck drag racing our little CL350 Honda until my first son was born, then all racing stopped and all spare monies went for diaper and baby food buying started.

Funny when you think back about your starting wages.. When I was 16 I had a job with a company like today's Macy's at $1.35 @ hour and got a 25 cent raise when they made me head shipping clerk and I was living big.. In the summer driving truck at the ranch I got $2.50 @ hour that was big money for a 16 year old....

Years ago the front office with the company I retired from were doing house keeping, and I found my very first paycheck and stub. After $85 pays at my first job, I was rich!

$5000. a month that's only $60,000 a year that's just above the starvation level.. You got to be in the $100k range here, 10% sales tax, $3000. property tax, med house, $1000 person property tax, a boat, taxes on your phone are as much as the phone bill, state tax, income tax, $9.00 return tax on a battery, that's going up, $3.50 oil filter tax, $3.50 oil disposal tax, sales and excise tax on tires, or tax on tax, $.75 gas tax, I could go on and on, but hey welcome to CA.............
