1. Thanks, I needed this to send to a wingnut client.

I brought up the question to him the other night and neither of us knew. Now we both do.

3. Very depressing for AL Latest figures show CA with 37+ million people has a 23.5% SPM 3-year average

 

page 12, table "People in Poverty by State Using 3-Year Averages Over 20091, 20101, and 2011" at http://www.census.gov/prod/2012pubs/p60-244.pdf

Alabama, 5 million people, has a rate of 14.5% for the same period.

Excluding TX, the other 7 states have 32 million people.

4. I live in a "right to work for less" state...I call it...

"right to be fired", because you can be fired at any time for any or no reason. There is no such thing as job security, wage security or benefits for most jobs in a right to work for less state.
