    Amidst the chaos of the current pandemic, the fall in inflation is the silver lining. Consumer prices have declined by 0.8% in April. That is the lowest drop since December 200, the beginning of the Great Recession. Despite the $3 trillion in federal aid, the pandemic is still putting a downward presson prices.

    We still do not know the full impact on wages. Precision staffing does maintain and track statistics and average pay rates by job function. Companies need to know consumer pricing, spending trends and salary rates to make strategic decisions.
