cost of living

Is life really getting that hard all over the world? I thought it is only in some countries that people are having difficulties coping up but it seems that the problem is spreading all over the world. Is the cost of living getting so high for the average person that he has to work so hard just to live a decent life?

I was suprised to hear that too, but it seems like it is spreading all over the world. I think it's kind of a snowball effect. The rising price of fuels raises prices for everything including grocerys, home heating, and medicine.

It is very evident now in the Philipines. Life is getting harder and harder and I know other people from other countries are also experiencing hardships. This is the reason why most people are forced to work abroad or have double jobs just to survive.

Yes, my dear the life is getting harder and harder. Average income earners really have to double time. If you will notice, the average and the poor are the ones most affected by the difficulties of life but the rich ones seem to be just resting on their wealth. Even the prices goes up, they can still afford for they have more than enough money to sustain. But the average have just enough and if the prices tend to go higher they will have to work harder in order to carry on, while the poor don't even have enough and should the prices go higher they will end up having nothing.
