Despite all the grandiose optimism Lincolnites have for their city. It seems like Lincoln and Lancaster County have major economic issues

From the Bureau of Labor Statistics
Average weekly wage comparison
Lancaster County, NE $649 (-.6% lower then a year ago)
I love how Lincolnites are so arrogant how about how they percieve their town is being perfect. Yet the economy is ridiculous. Lincoln's weekly wage is roughly $48 less then the largest city in the poorest state in the nation (Mississippi).
Come on Lincoln so arrogant and yet you cant even keep up with Jackson, Missisippi; Little Rock, Arkensas or Topeka, Kansas on wages
Denver (Denver) $988
Hennepin County (Minneapolis) $982
U.S average $784
Polk, Iowa (Des Moines) $783
Shawnee, Kansas (Topeka) $675
Franklin County, Ohio (Columbus) $805
Oklahoma County, Ohio (Oklahoma City) $708
Cass County, North Dakota (Fargo) $649
Dane County, Wisconsin (Madison) $784
Hinds County, Mississippi (Jackson) $697
Jefferson County, Alabama (Birmingham) $803
Pulaski County, Arkensas (Little Rock) $717

Even North Platte, Nebraska average yearly wage per job is just 5% lower then Lincoln. Even the small towns in Nebraska are getting ready to approach Lincoln wages. How sad!!

Default If you look at the link I provided, nearly half of the US cities did, every city has a down year
