Animal Career Certification Programs Deeply Discounted
If you’re like many Americans, you may be struggling right now, weighing career options, worrying about finances, wondering if you’ll ever get ahead.
By now it’s no longer news that inflation is hitting everyone hard. Higher prices mean your dollar doesn’t stretch as far as it used to. Food and housing costs are surging, as are the prices of used cars, gasoline, and utilities. Prices on everything are going up.
Though inflation peaked last summer at over 9%, the current rate of 6.41% is nearly double the long term average inflation rate of 3.28%. According to CNBC, in October U.S. households were spending an average of $433 more per month than the previous October. At the same time, the real average hourly wage has decreased by 0.7%.
For the average person, all of these figures add up to one thing: it’s getting harder and harder to make ends meet. None of the economic news seems to be encouraging. Could it really be a good time to change careers?
