Report: Biden-Flation Delivers Steepest Pay Cut in 25 Years

More than half of all U.S. workers’ wages are shrinking
October 5, 2022 — 'Inflation Reduction Act'    — Bidenflation    — Blog    — Press Releases    — Talking Points   

More than half of American workers’ paychecks have fallen behind – the highest share of workers since 2011, the last time President Biden was in the White House.

These workers have seen their paychecks slashed by nearly nine percent – the steepest pay cut in 25 years, according to a new study from the Dallas Federal Reserve.

With Biden-Flation accelerating, it’s no wonder nearly three in four workers say their paychecks aren’t keeping up with rising prices. A new Bank of America survey also found that an overwhelming majority of workers are stressed about their finances.


President Biden is a Pay Cut President. 

  • More than half of workers’ paychecks have been slashed by nearly nine percent, the steepest pay cut in 25 years, according to analysis from the Dallas Fed.
  • Over two thirds of workers report their paychecks have been unable to keep up with rising prices.
