I'm gradually noticing a decline in our standard of living, at least in this area. It seems declining wages and inflation are really starting to show. It's especially showing among the young people. Their cars are getting older and more run down. I can't count the number of vehicles that have to open their doors at drive thru windows because their electric windows don't work. I've also been surprised at how many walk to work because they don't have a car. Every one of them has a smart phone but most don't seem to have much else. They talk about McDonald's dollar menu like most of us use to talk about McDonald's regular menu back when their regular menu was the cheap food. When did copper and steel become valuable enough to actually steal? I'm in no way knocking anyone for not having much (I've been there) but it just seems like the overall standard of living is really on the decline for a lot of people and I'm not sure how many have even noticed? I was just wondering if anyone else is noticing the same things in their areas? And if so, do you think this going to be a long term trend?
