Minimum wage

A quarter pound (as we know it) of Rewa Butter costs $2.75.

The minimum wage is $2.68 per hour.

A person has to work a bit more than an hour to be able to buy a quarter pound.

Now, I was looking at a good pair of school sandals, e.g. Cebo.

An advert in the newspaper advertised that a child’s pair costs $115.

Wow, can someone calculate home many hours does a person on minimum wage have to work to be able to buy a pair for his child.

When I try to calculate it — my calculator keeps saying .. error, error, error.
