12. yeah, that's California. It's up to $160,000 here in New Mexico

Low wage workers can increasingly be found in mudpit RV parks in camper shells sitting on cinderblocks, if they're lucky enough to have found something like that. Otherwise, they're crammed in with relatives or with too many roommates in a slum apartment or in a shelter or in a sheet metal lean to in the woods.

This is supposed to be one of the wealthiest countries on earth, and too many of us are now living in conditions exactly the same as you'd find anywhere in the third world.
