BidenStamps are driving workers home and prices up


The cost of filling up our grocery carts is rising . Store shelves are empty . It’s getting more difficult to find Christmas trees — and workers .

But what many Americans and political leaders missed is that the unemployment bonus, which has since expired , has not been the only cause of the worker shortage or more recent inflation.
