“Before 1913 we got 100% of our paycheck”

“Before 1913 we got 100% of our paycheck” is a saying against the Federal Reserve Bank (founded in 1913). The Federal Reserve System has devalued the currency, and a dollar in 1913 was worth much more than a dollar is worth over 100 years later.

Wikipedia: Federal Reserve
The Federal Reserve System (often shortened to the Federal Reserve, or simply the Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, after a series of financial panics (particularly the panic of 1907) led to the desire for central control of the monetary system in order to alleviate financial crises. Over the years, events such as the Great Depression in the 1930s and the Great Recession during the 2000s have led to the expansion of the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System.

Can we just go back before 1913 when employees actually kept 100% of their check.

Before 1913 Americans got to keep 100 percent of their paycheck no taxes and before 2017 we were given bags when we bought items from a store as a courtesy what’s next. Electricity has more than double in cost in two years. What is going on in America. We need to at least act like we are about the future of our country.

The Fed was created to stabilize financial markets. It ended up creating the worst depression in history, just 17 years after its inception. Before 1913, we kept 100% of our paycheck and inflation was unheard of. Its a system to make the rich richer and poor poorer.

Yep, we got 100% of our paycheck before 1913. Of course, not me and you, but Americans did. Why dont they do an expose on that?
