But stop just a minute and consider the whole situation. Look at family incomes, for one thing. The average factory worker's take- home pay today is more than half again as much as it was 10 years or so ago. During this same time, food prices have gone up only one- fifth, according to Richard Maxon, Iowa State University extension economist. This means that an hour's wages will buy more of most foods today than it did a decade ago. For instance, the "market basket" of food you can buy with what you earn from 43 hours' work today would have "cost" you 55 houri of work m 1952. In 1947, it would have "cost you 64 hours of work. Because incomes have gone up faster th'un food prices, a smaller share of the family -n- come now goes for food. Today the family grocery bill accounts for about a fifth of your take home pay. Just after World War II, slight ly over a fourth of your take-home pay went for The difference between the share of the budget going for groceries then and now v/ould be even greater except for the fact that fami- I es buy more expensive foods and more ser v.ces, v/11 h and kinds of food today „. -,„, only 15 cents of the dollar would go for food, rather than 20 centi.
