Is it any wonder?

This is $30 of food.  Well, $29.16 to be exact. 

On minimum wage,  a person would have to work 3 hours to afford this with their take-home,  after-tax pay.   There’s no way you could feed a family on this.

Is it any wonder that people aren’t eating healthy anymore?

For the same money I could’ve brought several bottles of fizzy drink,  half a dozen bags of potato chips, a week’s worth of instant noodles, and a couple of chocolate bars,  if they’re on sale. 

Granted, smoked salmon isn’t the cheapest choice but it was really cheap today.  This isn’t my usual shop – but it’s about right for pricing.

I can see why taking the family to McDonald’s can be a cheaper option.

Jeepers.
Is it just here, or do you face the same thing where you are too?
