Oh my Gawd.....another ...Commie/Marxist/Socialist...."wealth distribution" article from the ASU (here's where all your hard earned Arizona Tax Dollars go, Folks) Cronkite School of Journalism. Looking at your graph....the difference between the States is....."INFINTESIMAL".

We have alot of uneducated people in this state, add in all the mexicans that compete with the uneducated for the low paying jobs and this is what you get. Not to worry, obama will take from the rich ( working people) and give to the lazy uneducated democrat voter.
The same mentality that says "no one chooses to be poor" is the same mentality that states, "no one chooses to be a drug addict, an alcoholic, an obese person, a compuslive gambler, a child abuser, or any other position in life". since this paper doesn't allow foul language, I'll jsut say male cow excretement. For most of the things that come our way in life, we sure as heck DO choose the path we are on.As part of my medical career, I spent many years doing community health in 3 different cities and their suburbs during the past 40 years. Many of the poor decided they didn't like it and worked their butts off to change that position. Just as many simply sat on their tush and demanded the government take care of them. Those traits are passed onto the kids who continue the same pattern for the most part. Many poor people seem to have enough money for beer, cigarettes, and lottery tickets - just ask anyone who works in the convenience industry.the ticket out of poverty is NOT handouts, but an ethic that says I'm going to change this. With all the free money for higher education over the past half century, there's no reason many people don't have the skills needed to get a decent job. I grew up in the slums of Brooklyn. A mostly Jewsih neighborhood and everyone of us was as poor as a schul mouse. We all did OK and most of us went on to become a professional or an enterpreneur. We had family involvement and god help us if we went to school and caused trouble. We also had trophies for academics in our hallways at school. Now you only mean anything if you can throw a ball around.What I'm trying to say with this rant is that poverty is a state of affairs that can be changed if you really want to. It does take work and time however. There are no magic bullits.
Arizona's new state motto, "Let em eat cake".The gap would have been even wider if Mitt had gotten elected.
I would have never guessed that there are poor people in Arizona, the "right to work" state that John Rhodes loved so much. Wow, poor people working for less than the minimum wage and not having golf club privileges. WOW. Shocking. Must be those dam brown people. Close the gates, don't let anyone else into our little slice(golf pun) of heaven.
Well, it might have something to do with the poor education in Arizona and Walmart being the largest employer. Walmart was in the news about horribly low wages.
Arizona is slowly pulling it's head from it's rear---though I suspect it will take years to recover. Education and decent jobs will fix it up!
More liberal/progressives trying to get more people on government dependency programs and keep their liberal/progressive socialist voting block intact. Nothing about personal responsibility to succeed or get ahead, just more government dole.
