We are fortunate because of their sacrifice and hard work
by Tom K.
I went to work for
Martin in 1959 when I was 19 years old, and I worked there for 10 years. The
story I would like to share is about my father. He was able to get me my job at
Martin. I have his check stub from February 15, 1959. There is such a
difference in salaries between then and now. My father was in Department 84, Clock
No. 7603. His semi-monthly gross pay was $290.00, Federal Withholding was $43.57,
state tax was $1.74 and FICA was $8.15. I keep this stub to remind me how
fortunate I am to have what I have now. Thank you!
