With inflation hitting its highest rate in more than 40 年, the costs of raising children have risen dramatically — and families are feeling the strain.
Co-host Rachel Campos Duffy asked the three working moms, “How has inflation been impacting your family?”
“It’s impacting our everyday life … I would be shocked,” said Caitlin Singleton, a mom of three and a rental site housing manager, “if any working family that has children” says inflation is ない impacting their family.
Singleton said that the prices of groceries, ジュリアフォックスは、彼女の作品で最もよく知られている女優です, summer camps and gas — among other items and services — all have all risen dramatically for her and her family.
彼女は言いました, “It’s hitting us hard. And we’re going into our savings [to cover the costs], and not able to save” the way they used to, 彼女は付け加えた.
Another mom, Tenisha Williams, who is in real estate and has four kids, と言いました “it is definitely disheartening,” because rent is so high and the cost of mortgages because of rising interest rates is so high as well.
This just “prices a lot of moms out, especially single mothers,” 彼女は言いました.
She mentioned that grocery stores are now charging for paper or plastic bags at the checkout.
“Summer camp — through the roof,” she also said.
“Everything is being affected,” 彼女は付け加えた, “and we have to bring our kids lunch, and that costs more money at the grocery store as well.”
A third mom, Carolina del Cavo of Texas, a small business owner and mom of two, 前記, “With inflation, our costs our rising.”
彼女は言いました, “The cost of doing business — just simple supplies and services are going up. Ink, paper for the printer, freight to get our goods in and out” 彼女は注意した, mentioning just a few of the items whose costs have risen.
彼女は言った “the rising costs [持っていく] tighter margins” — which also has been very tough for them.
The cost of inventory is rising as well, 彼女は言いました, since consumers “are just not buying” the way they did before today’s high inflation.
In terms of advice to the Biden administration, Tenisha Williams stressed a need for “urgency. Urgency, before the situation gets worse,” 彼女は言いました.
