SS receipients received a 3.6% raise last year and are projected to receive another this year.
I might pay that much for shelled pecans, such a pain! probably take me an hour to shell a pound...how much is time worth?
Sorry about that my post should have read for two years in a row people on SS didn’t get a raise....
Didn’t mean this year, guess I was more tired than I thought.
uh, you do know that “fixed” income for alot of people isn’t that much?
I know a lady you gets 500.00 a month, that’s it. That’s not enough to pay for anything.
gas prices are reflected in food prices...cost lots more for gas for trucking is reflected in food prices and everything else you purchase...Food prices can go up by the day...back in the Carter adm. a can of beans may have been upped in price 3 times on the top of the can....the cost inflation is because of the cost it will be to replace that can on the shelves next time the store has to purchase it...
During Carters adm. inflation (or interest) was reflected in what banks paid on CD.s It was 16% interest...don’t know enough to figure out why the fed or how the fed keeps inflation at 1%
As I understand it, the Federal Reserve bankers are stealing hand over fist...that’s where the difference is going. But what do I know?
I know nothing about that either...but was raising 5 kids the first 2 years of Carter (then one son went into the navy and the other Air Force) When your feeding a house full, food can cost a small fortune. Those families raising kids today have my sympathy. And us seniors that have investments bringing in 1 or 2 % have a little problem...I am doing all right but have kids and grandkids and the grandkids are having a problem finding a job....
Prayers up for your family and all who are in a similar situation of need.
much appreciated. TY
