Inflation is hitting Americans hard, with some shoppers in a new interview claiming they are now going without food, working overtime and passing on important essentials.
This series of interviews from everyday Americans is telling. One woman said she’s not vegan yet, but has become vegetarian because the price of meat has become unbearable.
Another man said that basic foods like eggs and orange juice have spiked in price, leading to him working more overtime, thus spend less time with his family, just so he can afford enough groceries for his family.
Between the combination of increased prices for both food and gas, two essentials for working Americans, the pain of everyday living can be felt in many ways. Smaller meals, working more hours to make the same purchases, going without, traveling less and other changing habits are reshaping how Americans live.
Sound familiar? Looks like the impact is happening at nearly every level of the economy and hurting the poor and working class the worst. The only people who seemed unconcerned are those making so much that paying more doesn’t really matter.
This has all taken place in less than two years under the Biden administration, leading many Americans to let their voice be heard in voting against Democrats during the November midterms. Find out more in the video now.
