Guess where it's worst to be poor in New Jersey | Editorial

There are 3 comments on the The Jersey Journal story from Apr 22, 2018, titled Guess where it's worst to be poor in New Jersey | Editorial. In it, The Jersey Journal reports that:

That's not the precise result of a new study that looks at a north-south divide in how the State of New Jersey divvies up municipal aid, but it's not an unreasonable assumption based on the findings. The new report comes from the same Rutgers University-Camden group that two years ago made the hardly surprising discovery that, after adjusting for all other factors, South Jersey as a region received less of the total state assistance pie than either North Jersey or Central Jersey.

Thats not any suprise to South Jersey residents. Thats been going on for over a century. South jersey was an industrial and wonderful farming district up until the early 1970s when it seemed politics began to change. Look at the progression and how a trickle down effect in fact doesnt work. In the early 1970s Owens Illinois located in Bridgeton left for cheaper labor I believe in virginia and or West Virginia, no matter what , they left, and when they did the entire financial standing of most of Bridgetons residents and many of the surrounding businesses left, then of course the Ritters plant, Cross Transportation, and many others. The real devastation began when the farmers starting selling off their lands to make way for the condos and homes being built, this hit really bad up in the Mullica hill area and began to flood south, Jersey lost most of its dairy farms there as did alot of PA.
Then the renovation projects for an already crumbling infrastructure and higher bank rates , lack of good paying jobs and bases being closed . New Jersey is still the diamond in the rough, the history is being swept away, council and freeholders are offing land taken by situations "were going to drain the lake because the dam doesnt look like it can hold. That was a bunch of crap, they walked in and offered money the same way the power plant and casinos were going to lower taxes or the way a bank walked into Greenwich . The powers in the peoples hands but the influx of people that werent born there, that have no idea of the histories , that dont know anything about whats going on to do much about it and then working for bills with no cash left to exist on. I wont even get into taxation, because the biggest curse to hit N.J. is when someone came up with an idea that subcontracting out govt jobs was the thing to do and thats how jersey went broke. Many people in Cumberland county over the period of 1973 to 2004 there were signs on the interstate telling motorists to "come to Cumberland County N.J. and recieve the welfare and food stamps, and all of the assistance you need", The other sign i recall was in Georgia...."We the farmers of Georgia apologize for putting the peanut farmer in Washington. Its all in the books. And now we have organizations that have coached the govt to rip down the statues and memorials. Its sad to see, as once the past is forgotten , no doubt it will be repeated unfortunately. God Bless Southern New Jersey.
