The Poorest Town in Idaho Is…
46 million Americans live in poverty and this town in Idaho is home to some of the poorest people in the state.
No doubt about it, life is tough. I worry about money myself all the time. The vast majority of us live paycheck to paycheck and it seems that life keeps getting more expensive even if a raise is no where to be seen in the near future.
According to a new study by MSN, Emmett is the poorest town in Idaho.
The average household income here in Idaho is $47,583 but in Emmett the average household income is just $27,722. Over a quarter of all Emmett residents live in poverty and only 16% of their residents have a bachelor's degree.
We love Emmett. It's beautiful and quaint and some of our favorite listeners come from Emmett. Did you know that they were the poorest town in our state?
