Been looking for this graph again for ages. Really useful and informative (and pretty).

@Adoxographer costs more to live and advance, costs less to distract yourself.

@Adoxographer What does it mean that Average Hourly Wages is "more expensive"? Just that wages have increased on average? I'd like to see a graph that takes that into account for the other lines. (E.g. does that mean that food and beverage have actually gotten *cheaper* as a proportion of income?)

I'm also not sure how to read this given that it's apparently not inflation-adjusted.
