It’s rough how much inflation has affected the price of goods for everyone at the grocery store. The last 10 years saw a steady increase in the usual cost of groceries, while minimum wage in some places stayed in the exact same spot as before. I have struggled personally, and I care about anyone else—but I am worried about those trying to make ends meet these days by certainly working 2 or several minimum wage positions simultaneously. They think they are trapped as well as suffocated by their dwindling ability to actually afford to survive in a world that gets increasingly more extravagant each year for the most of us. This is the primary driving factor that several have for wanting to raise national minimum wage. Across the board, if those folks struggling the most could have more cash in their pockets, all of humanity would eventually benefit from the swings. I don’t guess if this would be enough for our dwindling bustling city. We had so many dealers move in the 2008 recession that I’m terribly afraid of what the casualties will be once the pandemic is finally over. I easily remember that rent for commercial office spaces as well as other industrial buildings was actually high roughly 15 years ago. I was going to open a company however was easily deterred by the high rent costs just to have our own building. Nowadays I hear that you can rent commercial offices way out by the interstate for next to nothing. It’s so cheap that I have considered finally expanding our small online company by getting an office as well as warehouse space for the business. Even with the low rental costs right now for company development, I honestly can’t see myself making the leap anytime soon. The pandemic has all of us sadly fearing for our lives between viral exposure as well as economic ruin.
