SO yeah, these increasing food prices are all too real, but what really bothers me is that, in this same 8 year period, my 'cost of living' raises have equaled a little more than $2 an hour. So let me get this straight, the cost of food and pretty much everything else has more than doubled in the last 8 years, yet pay rates have gone up less than 10%. How is this supposed to work? And is inflation not supposed to be reflected in the whole money system, and not just how much things cost?? Inflation is the devaluation of money, correct? So why did my pay not double in this amount of time?
 Quoting: Billy_Sastard

corporate exploitation of the consumer expectation of inflation. Inflation if not measured in terms of real wage and job growth, or middle class wealth, is a phallacy; just corporate greed.
