The citizens of the City of El Paso are suffering from bad decisions stemming from wealth and income inequality.
Our City Manager, Mayor, and City Council, as well as the puppet masters that pull their strings, don’t know we’re poor.
They’re spending money like we’ve got money to burn.
In El Paso, poverty is not a sign of moral failure. Poverty is just the way things are. The City hasn’t done/isn’t doing anything to attract industry.
The City’s plan is destination retail. How are you going to lift yourself out of poverty with destination retail? Tend bar? Wait tables?
Sell drugs, or plasma?
My friends that move out of town tell me, “I can’t believe how easy it is here in ___________.”
El Pasoans are hard workers. We’re not lazy. We bust ass.
We bust ass just to stay afloat.
