It's just their uninformed way of saying they just want their income vs cost of living to be a better ratio.
Just get them actual real wage gains vs the COL and keep inflation normal and they will be very happy economically. Crowing about the wage gains of the last few years for the poors is just so fucking tone deaf and I don't blame them for not really liking the Dem party if that is what they hear.
"I want prices to go down" is fairly unambiguous even if I point out they've gained income. Most of them seem to view higher prices as something that was done to them vs higher income which is something they accomplished on their own.
