In 1900, to buy a dozen eggs, it took a little bit more than an hour’s worth of work for the average person. You were making about 21 cents an hour, and a dozen eggs cost about 23 cents. So that was a lot of work to serve your family a dozen eggs. So just to understand how much the prices have actually fallen over time, the typical wage now is about $23 an hour, and eggs are, you know, $1.69, maybe $2 depending on what you’re buying.

So it takes a fraction of your hour. You can make enough money to buy a dozen eggs in a matter of minutes these days.
