Loved seeing people making $12 an hour, driving an hour each way to their manual labor job complain about spending $120 a month a tolls and then thinking the North East or the West Coast is a literal hell hole compared to the hell hole their physically living in now.
Yep, where in a near by rural county a few months ago, a guy with a long rap sheet, drove up to another car in an intersection. Unloaded his entire magazine killing the unarmed driver, hitting other cars nearby and striking businesses on that side of the street. Only stopped firing because he ran out of bullets. And yet the local sheriffs department claimed they lacked evidence to charge him with murder because he claimed stand your ground, that he thought the other driver reached into his car and he assumed he had a weapon, so he drew first and pressed the trigger until he ran out of bullets.
These kind of things do not attract America's top talent or draw a highly educate work force. And yet, we're a magnet for people seeking easy to find low wage jobs cleaning hotel rooms. Among my 500 person high school graduating class, the most successful are the most educated with graduate degree. Whom, not surprisingly live and work in the North East and West Coast as that's where the high paying jobs are and the most educated work force. Those who stayed ended up at middle, lower middle class, with about 1/3 of them straight out struggling to survive cleaning hotel rooms.
