The effective tax rate of middle class families in the 1950s was 5%. This enabled families to live very well on one income and have a full-time parent at home. I believe that the modern need for two-income families completely arises just from the need of paying all of the extra taxes that have been levied and increased, and the costs of day care because no one is still at home.
