I was being literal.<quoted text>
I took you literally when you said "You can't realistically run a home off 50k a year, which is what this pay translates to."
A household most certainly can be run on $50K a year. There are more people running a household on less than $50K in Fitchburg then there are above that line.
And given the rate of short sales, foreclosures and bankruptcies around here...I'm correct.
I'm not sure what that 2009 data suggests in regard to people's incomes and being able to sustain a household.
