Have you ever seen those gorgeous California tourism commercials, where the famous people in the ads are having a wonderful time on the beach, on the golf course, and doing various other fun activities?
Well, the latest study from U.S. News and World Report puts those commercials to the lie and unmasks the ugly truth about California.
The latest rankings of best to worst states puts California firmly in the middle of the pack, thanks mostly to being ranked the 4th best economy in the nation, but the reality is that there is a wide gulf between the have’s and the have-not’s in the Golden State. That high economic ranking is misleading because so many of America’s wealthiest happen to live in the state. While California may have a high-powered economy with many wealthy people, the state also has the nation’s WORST poverty rate as well!
