Americans Are Going To Be Absolutely Shocked By The Empty Shelves That They See

Around 18% of beverages, 15% of frozen foods, 16% of snacks, 15% of candy and 18% of bakery items were out of stock at stores during the week ending on October 3, according to the latest data from IRI, which tracks in-stock levels at leading US grocery chains, big box stores, pharmacies and wholesale clubs.

Our supermarkets should actually have less shortages than just about anyone else, because the vast majority of our food is produced right here in the United States.  The most serious supply chain problems involve products that need to be shipped into this country, because right now we are seeing major issues “at almost every link in the chain” for imported goods…

At almost every link in the chain, there is a shortage; there aren’t enough yard workers to unpack the cargo on the ships quickly enough, nor are there enough drivers able to ferry them around on the ground. In stores, retailers don’t have enough workers to unpack them once they arrive.
