Wasn't that refuted in another thread. Why try to pass it in this one?
I see on the net that it has fallen below 50% but that is not what you are claiming.
It's not so hard to refute.
The mean income for an American household is in the $50K range. Go to a cost of living calculator and assume you live in almost any other state of the
union with that income. Then compare what you would need to make to be on comparable footing to live in a place like California or New York or
Let's say you live in Abilene, TX, and are moving to Chicago area. $50,000 needs to be $62,607 - a 25% increase.
Moving to Los Angeles would require you to make $75,592 - a %51 increase.
Moving to New York would require you to make $93,318 - an 86% increase.
And that's just to break even with the standard of living you had in Abilene at $50,000. You know not everyone in those cities is pulling those rates
to live middle class lifestyles.
