Can we have a list of families OR at least suggestions, opinions or factors on why there is gigantic gap between the two?

It is amazing. Rolla has a few millionaires, a lot of people in the middle, the the guys who are dirt poor.

I am curious to know why. Sure you can be born into a poor family or rich family to start with.

This is a silly question. There is various reasons why people are wealthier than others. The wealth gap in Rolla is relatively small for the diversity of people.

I think Kenny McCormick's family is the poorest in town. They are so poor, they can only afford to eat frozen waffles and pop-tarts for dinner. His father should start cooking meth so the family can make some money, but both parents are always so drunk or high...
seriously?

I am not being rude. I wasn't exactly narrowing down to search out the poor, but find out why and what causes this divide?

Sorry of I offended anybody. I heard the richest person is this man who owns Investment Realty. In this case how did he he succeed and thousands are content and complain about $7.00 hr wages?

Its not a stupid discussion. It's something that will hopefully make people [like you]- who may be poor to pull themselves together.

I'm not even going to dignify you with an arguement, I have a job and go to school so I don't have time for you.

I would, however, like to sum you up quickly by stating the obvious; you're an idiot.

Thanks.

There is more than one factor that determines whether someone is wealthy

some people are lucky; some are not

some are born to wealthy families; some are not

some are smart; some are not

some work very hard; some do not

some play by the rules; some do not

some seize opportunities; some do not

some waste their time on topix; some do not

I think probably 75% of residents in Rolla make $11 per hour or less at their jobs.

Thanks for your input.

But where would these residents work, and why only $11.

I was here when Briggs closed. We were angry.

So now my husband works at the walmart DC.

Still not enough to live in Rolla.

I know a couple immigrants that showed to America from a place of real oppression and poverty.........in less than 10 years they went from literally showing up with the clothes on their back to being millionaires..........their secret? Spend like a miser, live like a pauper and work like a slave......simple as that. Lots of folks want to SPEND MONEY like they are rich.......but that's not the path to wealth........its the path to credit slavery.........why are people content with $11.00 an hour? Because they are comfortable and have no ambition to do what is required to do more.......they can put in their 8 hours pay the bills and go home and watch American Idol.

You money obsessed people...and talking about poor people. Who gives a damn... Really I think happiness and doing what is right is more important. I do not need to be rich as long as I have everything I need. Im happy... My daughter is taken care of and everything is just fine. I may not have everything I want but I have everthing I need. Thank God. I would rathet be poor and happy than rich and miserable. I would rather give up a few things I want..to spend time loving my kids and my family. If I am working constantly...who is going to raise my children? The money and material things...I do not think so.
