Czechs express fear of poverty and impotence of the authorities

Nearly two-thirds of Czechs fear low living standards and poverty due to rising prices, and 8 out of 10 people are cutting back on their spending to cope with rising energy and fuel costs.

A study conducted by the Center for Research (STEM) found that only 16% of respondents consider the government’s efforts to prevent worsening poverty sufficient, while the majority of respondents said that 84% consider government support insufficient.

Also, about 80% began to significantly reduce their spending on purchases due to high prices.

Citizens over 60 consider their situation more vulnerable than others: 89% of them say they have already had to limit their needs.

The survey showed that only 18% of people are confident that the situation with prices will improve, and the group that expressed optimism is university students and young people under the age of 29.
