Falling incomes turn California into modern-day Dust Bowl: Susan Shelley

All those who have the means are the first to leave.  What are left are the wealthy who can afford to endure anything and the poor who have no choice but to endure everything.
Nearly 60 percent of California voters with children living at home agree with the statement, “my children will have a better future if they leave California.” More than 75 percent now think “earning enough income to enjoy a middle-class lifestyle is becoming almost impossible in my part of California.” In Los Angeles County, it’s 87 percent.

That’s from a new survey by the California Chamber of Commerce. And if you think those numbers are discouraging, the numbers in a just-released report from the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation are even worse.
