Are you tired of paying high costs for products that cost pennies to make?
price gouging, cost is up pay is down, suckers, how much does it cost to make a product, virses what we pay for the product. tired of being taken advantage of??? It's time to stay home for a week and shut down business that are run by big corporations and teach them just who is in charge!! We can do this! Via the Internet, we can make huge change. Who is with me? The large corporations have billions at the top, and there are plenty of them. The money sports players, movies, movie stars etc.... are making and charging us $6 for a beer that cost 20c to make has to stop. Movie theaters charging $4 for a soda, nuts. And these are just a few. I'm not just singling them out. Overhead is one thing, paying for unnecessary salaries is stupidity.

did you mean versus. Though many products cost in materials and even labor may be much much less than what it costs on the shelf. Well that is why someone takes the risk of a business, to make a profit.

Not if I'm selling. The anwser is, don't by the crap! The price will come down. I have quit eating things like beef. I don't buy from deli's, and if doing fast food, I work the 99 cent menu. Don't buy name brand stuff, that's where they really get you, and look at the price. Walmart is really bad. They'll have one item... More
