Not a single restaurant or retailer has a reason to keep pricing steady while their competition raises pricing.

Here's the way I look at it. The federal government made it profitable to offshore many US industries, taking those jobs with them. Thanks to the Department of Education, today's children are graduating high school barely able to read or do math. Put the two together and you have a situation where people are now trying to make careers out of working at fast food restaurants. What else are they going to do? Even if there were jobs out there, today's youth certainly aren't qualified for them.

So you have people approaching thirty years of age, with mountains of college debt from their BA in Underwater Transgender Basket Weaving, living in their parents basement, driving a clapped out Honda with 250,000 miles on it, who cannot survive on their own but somehow manage to have the latest in cell phone technology and neck tattoos to proudly announce their ignorance to the rest of us.

Yeah, flipping burgers is about all they have left. And, dammit, they want to make six figures for doing it.

People obsessed with homosexuality are often closet homos.

I will have to bow before your superior knowledge about that considering that you are a Tesla owner, and I am admittedly not. Everything I know about gays I learned from the Biden's bringing "decency" back into the White House. Apparently, "decency" requires a whole lot of KY jelly.

I'm as gay as fellow Tesla driver Tom Brady.

Inflation is mostly caused by the government controlling (expanding) the money supply.

Rising prices (in this case) are a reaction to the government-caused inflation.

Not a single restaurant or retailer has a reason to keep pricing steady while their competition raises pricing.
Florida Min wage for tipped employees are $8.98
for students $4.25
for small businesses with sales under $110k $4.00
for agricultural $7.25
for government and non profit employees exempt

Lots of places still have pretty decent specials. Mc D's has sandwich, fries and drink for $6.49 and I don't think they ask for a tip at the register.
I've seen several driving by with signs advertising $15 to start.

I can see a lot going down in the next few years. With rents rising as they are, these places are in a tough spot.
How long will they last with $6 black coffee and $7 iced tea?

Same with all the apartments/condos going up, everywhere, will be interesting.

Being married to a Victoria Secret model was just a ruse. You ever notice how he used to cozy up behind his center?

I was told in 2016 on the other forum that I was gay because I bought a Tundra 4x4. Still waiting for the gay to kick in. And, 8 years on, wondering if the guy who made the statement is still driving HIS truck. I suspect not. Of course, I am still driving mine. It's a Toyota.
Here's my doctored up Freschetta frozen bake-to-rise pizza from last night. Delicious. Sausage, pepperoni, uncured salami, spicy salami, etc. Name:  Pizza.jpg

It's a Freschetta. $6 at Winco and a boatload of calories. Having the other half tonight. It's a large size. Heads and shoulders above DiGourno and the others. No offence, but Red Baron is similar to Totinos.... lower end stuff. A Freschetta frozen pizza is about equal to a Round Table or here, Me and Ed's pie. Damn good for the money. $6 vs $24 or so. And far, far, far superior to Dominos or Pizza Hut or Little Cesars, which are not even edible.

If you are going store-brought or value, my two go-tos:

1) Costco, not great, but quick, and value,,, dogs love it
2) Walmart Marketside, NOT frozen, lots of choices, again VALUE

I am done with the $30.00 (taxes + tip) one topping 16" pizza, **** FJB!!
