Jobs with good salaries
Ghana’s current economic problems have put Ghanaians in a situation where their incomes must match up with the current inflation rate.
Inflation for the month of June inched up to 42.5% from an earlier 42.2% in May. This means that the prices of goods have increased by 42.5% in June 2023.
This also means that if incomes remained the same whiles prices of goods and services increased then consumers may run into debt or reduce their spending.
Even though the effects of these happenings may not be felt immediately, over time the quality of life reduces.
