The city of New York, like many cities, is having a tough time keeping merchandise stocked on their store’s shelves. A combination of slow supply lines, a lack of people wanting to work, and shoplifting has turned New York City into 1950’s Moscow.
Stores such as CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reade are all running very low on goods. Supplies are being held up on cargo ships that are taking up to four weeks to dock at US ports.
Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with the global pandemic. Sure, there were supply chain troubles when the Chinese Wuhan Virus began – because everyone was on lockdown – but now this is more about White House policies than any “slow supply lines.”
A lack of manpower to unload them and to drive goods around the US is causing a giant backlog.
It’s almost as if people don’t want to work when the government is paying them more to stay home.
Experts have warned the government to intervene or face spiraling inflation and unemployment, as rocketing demand for goods in short supply pushes their prices up. US consumers have already seen prices of everyday items rise in recent months, with economists warning of an extended period of inflation that will push up the cost of living.
Erik bought a Dallas Cowboys jersey a few days ago. It was on sale because the player was just traded. I selected the “three-to seven days delivery” to save a few bucks. The other day I was sent an email claiming the jersey would be here on October 20th – two weeks after it was ordered.
I’m starting to believe Kamala wasn’t joking when she said we should start purchasing Christmas presents now. I don’t think she meant to say it, but she probably knows what we do not; the administration is doing nothing to encourage Americans to go back to work, and doing even less to fix the supply chains.
Joe Biden built that!
