    inflation has been going on so much regularly for a year that i'm already used to eating less, paying more, having less money, going without things. I don't mind ramen and peanut butter but the way the economy is looking it's cheaper to eat stuff even cheaper than that, I have to get really creative and I do and don't get hungry

    I'm looking for a job at the grocery store because the market is really desperate for workers right now (and I am desperate for money and cocaine and booze and a new fax machine) and they are all offering big discounts like 30% employee discount so I think that's the best move because no matter how much money you make you cannot escape SHRINKflation which in my opinion is worse than INFLATION

    I can substitute and make do ad hoc in infinitium but when stores are closing down, running out of shit and feel like covid times and everything stays the same price but you get 1/2 the amount it almost hurts more than just the price of shit going up constantly which does happen but idk it feels like it's hitting and equilirium at this point at least where I live

    the government is panicking passing laws and everyone is angry. HURR DURR ITS THE GREEDY CEO FAULT nah the economy is just fucked from TOO MUCH REGULATION not NOT ENOUGH

    Ottawa is creating a “Grocery Task Force” to oversee and probe industry practices like “shrinkflation” as Canadians grapple with the cost of food — but how might it work?

    The task force was one of five measures announced by Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne Thursday in a bid to stabilize food prices.

    Champagne had promised action by Thanksgiving long weekend by the country’s big grocery chains as his government sees a slide in the polls with Conservatives gaining as they drill in on affordability issues.

    But what is “shrinkflation” and what do we know about how the task force could work?
    What is the task force?

    The Grocery Task Force will be a form of consumer advocacy team that will be created out of the Office of Consumer Affairs, which operates out of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.

    The beer industry is again calling for a last-minute reduction to the federal beer tax — which is set to increase on April 1 — as brewers and consumers continue to struggle with costs.

    According to an official adjustment published by the Canada Revenue Agency over the past week, the excise duty rate is set to increase by 4.7 per cent this spring to account for inflation.

    But Beer Canada, the association that represents various brewers countrywide, wants that increase reduced to two per cent.

    If that sounds familiar, it's because a similar situation happened last year. Brewers were facing a 6.3 per cent increase, a historic high, until the federal government capped the tax at two per cent right before the deadline.

    "What we're trying to communicate to the government is that a lot of the rationale and the circumstances that supported that decision last year still exists today," said Luke Chapman, vice president of federal affairs at Beer Canada.

    I don't like lettuce, it's basically water. I always opt for spinach, kale, shit like that be cause of it's higher vitamin and mineral properties

    You guys notice that dollar menus are disappearing, I can't get anything for a dollar now. The places around here that have the closest thing to a dollar menu have a 2$ or 3$ menu so I'm spending like 6$ for lunch as opposed to 2$ or 3$.

    A subway footlong is like 15$

    Ner Vegas made it for me. I wanted the Wariat emoji flipping back and forth and aldra made this one two three for me. If you ask him to make you a good one he'll do it. He even logged into my account to set the avatar since I can't download gifs on my Chromebook.

    10/10 guy.
