    Yeah right....  I spent over 2 years as a case worker in the THE WORST inner city neighborhoods in America, and I can tell attest that your perception isn't even close to the truth.  Do 'some' people in the inner city work multiple jobs and have terrible commutes?  Yes.  Those people should be held up, applauded and advanced in our society.  

    But the vast majority...?  Please.  The unemployment rate in some of these areas is over 50% for males, and there are help wanted signs all over the place.  Most of the men are nowhere to be found, especially before noon.  The single mothers and fatherless children are the sad recipients of this wonderful "work ethic" you espouse.
