Biden’s worker shortage makes the Fed’s job of fighting inflation more difficult.

  • According to September’s JOLTS, there are about two job openings for every available worker. This shortage has fueled wage increases to keep up with rising prices from Biden-Flation, leaving the economy in a dangerous wage-price spiral.
  • According to a new study, higher prices from Biden-Flation may not peak until July 2023, and won’t return to normal levels until 2025.
