    • Real average hourly earnings decreased 3.0%, seasonally adjusted, from May 2021 to May 2022.

    • Real wages have decreased under Biden 10 out of the last 12 months.

  • Inflation will cost Americans OVER $5,000 this year.

  • Americans are paying more for just about everything because of inflation.

  • Most Americans expect inflation to get worse in the next year and are adjusting their spending habits in response to rising prices.

    • U.S. consumer sentiment plunged in early June to the lowest on record as soaring inflation continued to batter household finances.

  • Already, diesel is up 115%, natural gas 202%, fertilizer 220%, and fertilizer ingredients are up 125%from January 2021 to January 2022.
