(Scroll down), shows that food prices have increased to 20 times the average costs in 1960.
They almsot GAVE dried beans away in 1960. Now what used to be a huge 20 pound sack costs the same as one pound of them now.

2. Workers demand higher wages to compensate for food cost increase.
3. Repeat step one and two forever.
