I should have labeled it "why do democratic cities go on about income inequality when they so unequal"

I wonder why Democrats talk about the income disparity when the cities they have run for nearly century are some of the most unequal cities on the face of the earth.

There are some Republican metro areas like Ogden and Provo, Utah that have income disparities that arent that are only slightly higher then European countries. Yet elitest cities like San Francisco and New York City with just democrats have similar disparities to Latin America.

Republican metro's like Ogden, Colorado Springs, Bismarck and Lincoln have a far lower income disparity then elitest liberal cities like Boston, New York City and Washington DC.

For instance, I worked in a call-center in Ogden, Utah making just $15 an hour with unlimited overtime. Yet we had employees who were married able to afford large 3,000 square foot remodeled homes in good, safe neighborhoods. In a liberal city like San Francisco and New York that has politicians crying for socialism and taxes people post on this board worried if 100,000 dollars a year is enough for a decent apartment.

It also seems like jobs grow on trees in many fly-over Republican areas. Most Democratic coastal cities are so expensive that they have some elite jobs at the top and a huge underclass of welfare recipients. The costs are so high that manufacturers and customer service centers won't bother with these elitest cities.

When you compare the labor force participation rate in places like the Dakotas and Nebraska compared to New York City and Washington DC its evident that the plains states are far better at economic matters relating to employment then liberal eastern cities that have a small segment of botique jobs with a massive underclass.

You are comparing New York City, which has the highest concentration of people in the nation, Billionaires and homeless, to a city of 61,000

Do you not see the flaw in that argument or does someone really need to explain it to you ????

Also, Lincoln and Ogden have democratic mayors. Utah is by far one of the most progressive states in the nation despite being Republican.

I'd love to see actors, actresses, singers, professional athletes and Hilary Clinton equalize their income.

Do as I say but not do as I do.
