Sen. Rose Expresses Frustration With Media as Illinois Families Deal With Brunt of Inflation

A central Illinois lawmaker is growing frustrated with the media's inability to tell the story of the things happening in America today.


State Sen. Chapin Rose says it starts with the Chicago press corps who capitulates the messaging of Chicago and state officials as it relates to the shape of the Illinois economy.



According to Sen. Rose, inflation is another area he believes the media is complicit in sharing information that is inaccurate. He says gas and grocery prices are up and vehicles are difficult to find. 



As people get back into the workforce, there seems to be a two-fold issue. One is many households perhaps discovered they didn't need the extra income of one partner in the workforce and also parents are discovering finding childcare is very difficult right now.



The Mahomet Republic says the restaurant industry is struggling greatly because they rely on those part-time workers who sometimes have a second job or just part-time workers who don't have the time or need for a full-time job.
