State media tries to put a Band Aid on Justinflation
State Media: 'Inflation has risen to its highest point in a generation, pushing up the price of just about everything. But that goes for people's labour, too, as employers compete to keep up with their staffing needs.
'Officially, wages have risen by only 3.1 per cent in the past year, about half the official inflation rate of 5.7 per cent. But because the pandemic had such an unprecedented impact on everything — including statistics — it can be helpful to compare things today to how they were two years ago, before COVID-19. '
Can't afford groceries and gas? Inflation eating into your savings? Don't worry, says the CBC propagandist dutifully buttressing the Trudeau regime: your wages are going up too! Only, the increases are nowhere near high enough to account for diminished buying power and rising costs of living.
