A description of the source: This picture is of a page from a newspaper that came out in the 1950’s.

Explanation of the significance of the source: Reading through this newspaper the article that stood out to me the most was the one about the minimum wage act. We briefly spoke about this and class and talked about the purpose. During this time the act was to create a minimum age which would be one dollar.

Create an inquiry question: What were these impacts of creating a minimum age and how did it help us grow our economy?

What further research would need to be done to continue answering this question? I would have to search into how it has affected our economy by looking at how it’s changed since. I would also have to look more into why they put it in place and how it has changed.
