A long time ago, America had this thing called the Industrial Revolution. Businesses started making millions, and America was on the verge of becoming the #1 economic country in the world. As time went on, the U.K. began to crumble and America kept steadily rising until finally, the U.K. defaulted on their debt, and the U.S. took over as the top dog. This happened at around the time of Nixon. But then these evil things called "unions" started demanding outrageous amounts for work that didn't deserve that much pay. So to comp with that loss, businesses in the U.S. began having to charge more. As time went on, businesses began to charge more and more to comp for the stupid unions pushing for increased minimum wage. Which brings us to this crap. What needs to happen is an even lowering of wages, and thus a mandatory lowering of prices by the government. But will that happen? No. America is screwed.
