  •  Where I live in Az the cost of living far exceeds (5+ / 0-)

    the paltry amount paid to the average worker. The average price of housing has far outpaced the salaries paid to firefighters, teachers, police, and government workers. As you all are well aware, we have two of the smarmiest senators in congress and our state legislature isn't that far behind.
     The majority of the people I know and count as friends and neighbors struggle with 2 jobs just to meet the basics.
     I struck up a conversation with my garbage man last week and he's having a difficult time renting in the community he's lived in since grade school. Don't tell me red states are cheaper...that's a generalization that just doesn't hold up.
