Americans Should Expect Higher Service Sector Prices post-VirusCasedemic

#economy #prices #service #VirusCasedemic


America’s economy is not going back to normal post-VirusCasedemic, as economists predict higher prices and fewer options when it comes to dining out or going to see a film at the cinema.

The entertainment and service industries were among some of the hardest hit sectors by the virus chaos.

Shut downs, stay-at-home orders, mask mandates, and social distancing requirements forced many service-oriented businesses to close for extended periods of time and retool their businesses to follow local rules when they could reopen.

In many states, businesses owners in the hospitality sector are still facing restrictions. But as the vaccine rollout continues and infection rates fade, economists are expecting a strong Summer. But 1 thing is clear: higher prices from the entertainment industry, restaurants and other parts of the economy are here to stay.
