Corporate America Lays an Egg

Apr 3, 2023

Profits at Cal-Maine Foods, the biggest egg producer in the country, leaped by an amazing 718% over the last three months!

So, the real reason for the huge increase in the price of eggs was not the bird flu that forced farms to kill millions of chickens and turkeys, but price gouging by Big Egg. The capitalists’ message to consumers struggling to feed their family is: “The yolk is on you.”

Eggs cost so much, you can’t even find a rotten one to throw at a capitalist anymore!
