    Yes, it is becoming difficult for a young working class such as myself to survive and eat healthy these days.

    I have had people tell me that in the UK we will see a spike in the income of the wealthy and a drop in the income of the poor, this is unfair.

    It "causes" inflation (one could say that the action is inflation), it isn't caused by. The cause is going to be a combination of [costing more to make/grow and transport] and supply vs demand

    Working class can be brute and unpleasant but I don't hate them.

    I hate the fact that food, tuition fees, petrol etc is becoming more and more expensive, without increasing the income of the average Joe, it's unacceptable.

    And what more is the government supposed to do about it, really it's another thread, but it's just a matter of being patient, things are expected to significantly improve over the next few years.
