Why are po' boy sandwiches so expensive?

Doesn't po' mean poor? Why aren't they priced for po' people??

    Where did the term po boy sandwich come from?

    In 1929, during a four-month strike against the streetcar company, the Martin brothers served their former colleagues free sandwiches. The Martins' restaurant workers jokingly referred to the strikers as "poor boys", and soon the sandwiches themselves took on the name.

    Po Boy is not For Poor People. It is just a name. And the reason for the price is the cost of the ingredients.
