Citizens Groan as Inflation Soars, While Skilled Workers Profit

Layoffs at MetroTek delivery services have impacted local businesses and inventories are at bare minimums due to reduced supply services. Increased demand and low supply have caused prices to soar in the last few weeks as citizens scramble to make ends meet.

Business owners throughout Nomos are actively seeking skilled workers to help meet demand in an attempt to make the most of the supplies they do receive. In an interview with a local food services manager, the reporter learned that higher-skilled workers help businesses reduce wasteful practices. “There is more I can offer our customers and that will help keep prices lower.” said one of the Sushi Shack owners. In an effort to attract employees some are offering profit sharing incentives.

In other news! Rumors that GenoTek waiting lists have grown for cybernetic enhancements from citizens tired of dumpster diving for food scraps. Rat-be-gone! Plug in now, and feel the power!


  1. "Profit sharing incentives"? Hmmm, That sounds like a highly progressive concept. "Progressivism" - is often viewed in opposition to conservative or reactionary ideologies. The Progressive Movement began in cities with settlement workers and reformers who were interested in helping those facing harsh conditions at home and at work. The reformers spoke out about the need for law regulating... They also called for better working conditions for women.(Wikipedia)

  2. While I find the advent of profit sharing laudable, the focus still has to be on the customers. I am hoping we are through the worst of the price spike. Food seems to be more available and I'm not seeing as many hungry people on the streets. I have also seen some price decreases. We are getting through this, keep the faith!
