When we are in NZ and I'm in a check out line, I just hold out a handful of change and tell the cashier to take what they need.  :D Mighty confusing!
Den,

   Unfortunately our clerks are pretty poor at math these days and I routinely confuse them by giving them small change to reduce the small change I get back. If the bill is $4.87 and I give them $5.12 they often try to give back the 12 cents and tell me the $5 will cover it. Then they seem amazed that the change is a singe quarter. Our clerks push a picture on the cash register and type in the money received and the cash register tells them how much change to give back. If there is a power outage they are lost.

Well, WV-S, since our DanG Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into bill the $15 minimum wage, we won't have to worry about clerks who can't compute change in their head, because surely anyone worth $15/hour will be able to do simple math...

In Rarotonga they sell drinking coconuts for $2. If you pay with a $5 coin you might get a $3 Note as change. :D

I just did some quick research, and a dollar in 1900 is equal to about $28 today. That means that a quarter today is worth about what a penny was back then. We could get rid of the penny, nickel, and dime.

So if a 1930s Buck is worth about 30 ish bucks today that would make the the average wage for a week back then about $700 to $900 in todays world. At $15 bucks an hours for 40 hours (and 40 hour work week didn't exist back then) is $600 bucks in todays bucks.

Kinda looks like the minimum wage is still not keeping pace with inflation.

To equal the 1930 wage the minimum wage today would need to be about $18.75 an hour in todays world. Maybe thats why its hard to find good help! 
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

Maybe in Canada.
In the US the minimum wage law was passed in 1938. It was 25 cents per hour. 25 cents times 30 equals $7.50 per hour.
