Young adults explained on TikTok that the soaring inflation in Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere has created a dire cost of living crisis with no end in sight.

“I have a question: how are we affording life right now?” one TikTok user asked.

“I’m living paycheck to paycheck every week because I’m trying to pay every bill that the world is throwing at me,” another woman stated.

One crying woman said, “I can’t function anymore. Financially I just don’t understand anymore. I don’t understand how I make $34 an hour and I can’t function. I can’t pay my bills, I can’t even literally keep gas in my car to get to work three days a week because I can’t afford it.”

Another woman said, “I want to know how people in Canada are even living. I just feel trapped…I can’t afford the rent these days…I’m just feeling so much despair.”

A man broke down how government helicopter spending and money printing during the COVID period resulted in astronomical increases in housing prices.

Another woman explained the problem with food costs: “I just got back from doing groceries, and I have $70 worth of groceries on my table right now and I genuinely don’t even know what I purchased that made it to $70.”

“I’m working like three jobs right now,” she added. “The cost of living is outrageous in Canada.”

Inflation, coupled with elevated interest rates, is crushing the younger generation with no indication that it will come down anytime soon.
