PALMETTO STATE INCOME LEVELS STUCK …
|| By FITSNEWS || Median household income levels in South Carolina rose by an anemic $653 in 2014, according to data published this month by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The median Palmetto State household earned an estimated $44,929 in pre-tax income last year – a 1.47 percent increase from the previous year (after adjusting for inflation).
Good news? Eh, not really. That figure is down roughly two percent from 2012’s inflation adjusted $45,783 figure – when S.C. governor Nikki Haley was kicking her corporate cronyism into high gear. It’s also a whopping $7,173 (or 13.8 percent) less than its high-water mark of $52,102 in 1996.
South Carolina trails the national average by $8,728 – and leads only Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and West Virginia in this critical metric.

Government jobs salaries in South Carolina are way too much. Check the salaries for the major counties. Look at USC. Look at MUSC. Why is the State Ports Authority so fucking corrupt and fall under RICO ACT violations. Why does the State Ports engage in bid rigging with he same old contractors they use???
Yeah, that it’ll even out. Bring down everyone elses salaries so you feel better.
SC is like the Walmart of state economies.
And the citizens are like an episode of ‘People of Walmart’.
Does govt assistance countbas income?
I call me getting welfare my small business to make myself feel better about it.
Under my tax plan, the citizens of SC will not pay any federal income tax.
They will just need to fill out one form…….
However, on your form there will not be any place to write ‘I win!’.
Sorry, losers. You love me anyways….
The Country is STUCK…since Nov. 2008, you uneducated Fuck.
My life is much better finacially.
Why can’t you pull up your boot straps and get it together?
Because he’s too busy bitching about everyone else. He’s a petty little man with little self esteem. Haven’t we all figured that out? But he does have an odd fixation with fecel stuff.
I don’t know Rocky.He must have something you want for you to make posting on FitsNews your full-time job and ignoring your family?
Self awareness isn’t your strong suit, is it?
The words “strong” and “suit” aren’t in Tango’s vocabulary, that kind of language scares him.
If I saw you crossing the road, I would plow you down and smash your pea brains out.
Dang! This Rocky cat owning your ass time after time is really hitting a nerve.
Good going, Rocky!
You are Rocky. Lick Obama’s ass, boy.
Nope. Not Rocky.
I just can appriciate the way he gets under your thin, frail skin.
Yep. You are a fucked up stink ass.
If only you could drive.
It isn’t hard to do better than GWB so that’s not a huge accomplishment, but you are right either way.
Sitting on your lazy ass, getting food stamps, free housing, a welfare check and Obamaphone….that ain’t America, Dumbass…
Then get off your ass and quit doing those things, dumbass.
Yeah, cause South Carolinians weren’t dirt poor before 2008.
Dude, if you are doing so bad, that’s your fault.
Blaming Obama isn’t going to change the fact that you just can’t hack it.
Look in the mirror. This is America. You only have yourself to blame.
He needs someone to blame. He’s a strong believe in having any accountability. He also thinks his blog was a great hit.
What about the 94 million unemployed…most in US history…Obama FAILED miserably. Can’t hide from that, no matter how many lies you tell.
And pople know…just look at Hillary’s campaign.
Fuck you. I wish you would die from eating raccoon shit.
Nice one. But I stay organic.
Maybe he should go start his own blog… oh wait…
Someone get the license plate from that bus that just hit Tango?
FITSNews – the dick you suck- is announcing it. That’s gospel to you.
So I’d say you need to look in the mirror..
PS: 94 million unemployed Americans say you’re full of shit…sitting on your lazy ass, getting food stamps, free housing, a welfare check and Obamaphone. That ain’t America, asshole.
It’s your fault you don’t work…not Obama’s.
Thanks for pointing out you are one of 94 million.
Can you not work because you’re not mentally capable?
You’re fucked up in the head.
You’re unable to get a job or better yourself in this economy.
But it’s Obama’s fault?
You’re the one who’s fucked up, lazy and useless.
I pray you get shot to death by a mugger.
I am God, I will live forever.
Bible Thumper must be gutted.
Your mom sucked me off.
I know where you live.
I think the average is skewed. Take out the failed blogs and it’s probably $10,000 higher.
Suck a dick, faggot.
Uh oh, GrandTango/flip is drunk and out of juice again.
Back to the homophobe well again….
Nope, we got unstuck in Jan. 2009.
Your America is over and done. Get over it !
Go get a fucking job, deadbeat! Oh, wait…that would require you to sober up.
…we don’t need none a thet yankee learnin’ around here…. being broke knuckle poor is our HERITAGE, by God!
Bein’ smart is queer!
We are so poor, if it was not for I-85 and I-95, we would have no visitors. Someday, maybe a few of them will stop and say “hello” and buy something.
Since Obama was elected: 94 million unemployed nationally, most in history…End of Story.
And how many w/ jobs have been cut to PT???…facts are facts…you can lie about that….
In other news…. water is wet.
Check back in another 100 years and South Carolinians will still be dirt poor.
Dirt Poor and Will Always Be Poor … Poor Poor Poor Poor.
Your government is fucking you in the ass, South Carolina. And you like it :-)
Fourty Nine Charleston County employees earn more than $110,000.00 a year plus 20 paid days off.
About 510 employees, or 24 percent, earn $60,000 or more plus more than 20 paid days off.
Average Charleston County Pay is $47,534.00 a year.
If you have aging retirees and they are moving to your state during their lowest income years, it is bound to hurt your average. Other retirement states also show declines worse than SC. Florida, Nevada, and Arizona have higher incomes, but greater declines since 2010.
South Carolina has 3 of the top 10, 5 of the 20, and 9 of the top 100 retirement destinations.
Retirees don’t show up on the income radar.
South Carolina gives out dirt cheap wages. One of the lowest in the entire nation. But food and housing cost are rising while wages stay low. Soon, people will move out of the state causing the rich to fend for themselves when it comes to services. Auto Mechanics are already in very high demand. And so is skilled construction labor. People moved or changed skilled professions when the economy went belly up not all that long ago. And another belly up is looming on the horizon.
“Retirees don’t show up on the income radar.” WRONG!
The price of being a Red State. All of the poorest states are. They are also the most racist states. In those states the Republicans have been able to use their racial prejudices to dupe them into electing Republicans, to their detriment. Maybe one day the duped class will see the light.
All part of the Southern strategy, as articulated by Lee Atwater.
This this not about political parties you asswipe. Its about dumb backwards ass mother fuckers who are poor failures are running things. All they give a fuck about is themselves. Republican or Democrat … its makes no God Damn difference, you dumb pussy ass. So take your liberal bullshit, sit on it and rotate.
