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