you can ask me about inflation but let's talk more about wage stagnation
in my index of leading economic indicators, the $7 pint of beer is first, followed closely by the $5 tall can and the $3 cup of drip coffee. It's almost comical when it constantly feels like I'm at the airport waiting for a connecting flight and I cough up the money because I don't have a choice. Except I'm not at the airport, I'm at the corner store. All of it's underscored by the fact that take-home pay hasn't increased at anywhere near the same pace.
A.T. who sent me this photo, brought to my attention that the cost of living in Seattle is about twice what my two-income household makes in a year. put that in your electric scooter and smoke it.
