Bidenomics in action.
Inflation is so high in America today that New York City stores are putting SPAM under lock and key.
At $4 a can store owners are seeing an increase in the theft of the processed meat.
Store owners are also locking down canned tuna.
The US inflation rate is currently at 9.1% – a 40-year high.
Energy is up more than 40% for the year according to the BLS.
The Biden inflation numbers are no joke as the cost of living soars – the middle class is devastated.
The average US worker is losing $3,400 annually due to inflation – for married couples, the number is $6,800.
The News.au reported:
Inflation and crime have gotten so bad in New York that even cheap meat like Spam has to be locked up, the NY Post reports.
At Duane Reade’s store in the Port Authority bus station, the shelf-stable product — only $US3.99 ($5.70) a can — is now being stocked in plastic, antitheft cases.
“I’ve never seen that before!” one cashier laughed while using a magnet to remove a can of Spam from its cage.
The cashier was among the employees, tourists and store regulars stunned that the iconic blue-and-yellow cans are now being kept under lock-and-key — some even poking fun at the sight as “a sort of Jeff Koons homage,” per one viral tweet.
