About 5 years ago I read that the average family wage for Provo was
$29,000. It was about 10th from the bottom of a list of 250 cities
across the US. This, of course, was on a website and I have no idea
where they got the figures. I also don't know if they count students in
that average, but it was pretty sad nonetheless. Salt Lake was a bit
higher, but not more than halfway up the list. Considering that po-dunk
towns in the middle of nowhere fared better than Provo, I think that
says something about the area. It has seemingly changed for the better
lately, but I think we're still far below average, especially based on
cost of living.
> Regardless, I am not average. Are you?
Nope, I'm above average in most areas, including weight :D
> Snobby elitism rules!!
I prefer condescending holier-than-thou elitism, but whatever.
I apologize if po-dunk is the incorrect spelling. I've never actually
written the word before, nor have I seen it in print.
