And those companies are laying off.
And how are they getting 'screwed'?

Actually, when they get to write off the exorbitant real estate taxes on their federal returns, they are not paying their fair share to the IRS, and those of us in lower RE tax states, are paying more than we should, because we don't have enough to itemize deductions.

Those who live in high RE states, should now swing back on their local government and ask for a real accounting as to where their taxes go. Likely they didn't pay attention before, 'cause they could write them off. Now when they might actually lose a part of their refunds, or even owe money, maybe they'll start paying attention.....

Unfortunately you will never get these facts through the heads of Liberals.
High taxes and wasting tax payer money, never computes with the left.

I'm sure you know these tips.......

I'm in the same boat, and all of the manufactures we buy from have increased their lead times, because the raw material lead times have increased.

I'm being careful not to get too busy to service my contractors that use us exclusively. I'm fortunate that I can raise and lower my bid prices as I see fit, and therefore control my work.

Good luck buddy, I thank Hillary and crew also.
Yes, we are being careful because lead times are going out and we cannot ever fail. So, yes very conservative on the promises.

Surprisingly we can also bid higher to control work as well. Having seen about half of our competitors go under, we are in a better position as it is no longer a "buyers" market.
