Yea seriously man, we're Americans, of course we're all about making money. If you don't like it, move to Canada.
Damn, we are the last one.
I guess that means a lot of the rich people in San Diego don't work...

Oh, i got it, i thought that we were gettin poorer..
Is this with our without taxes?
I have no idea how someone can make it in New Orleans on $46,176 a year. I know I couldn't. I don't know where they calculate these figures, but, I know noone that makes that low of a figure in this city. I also find it interesting that 4 of the areas listed on the list are in Metropolitan New Orleans.

Actually if you look at any statistics from the census or other state/federal sources, New Orleans has a fairly low level of per capita and household income. It's ranked 204th in household income and 170th in per-capita income from looking at census statistics. LA also is ranked 49th in income in the US.

You must be fairly well off!
