Tell me why hand sanitizer used to be $0.99 and is now $3.29 and will never go back down to even close to $0.99 as inventory increases again Why did my tattoo shops ink, paper towels, even their medical grade Saran Wrap for Christs sake go up 45% Yet we’re all supposed to be soooo grateful for our 2-3% raises while many of our employers had record profits the last two years
