Why do you think Lawrence incomes are so much lower than the state average?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 31, 2006
“Because it’s such a big college town that people know they can pay kids next to nothing.”
“I think the students take up a lot of the job opportunities, and they’re willing to work for a lot less.”
“I think it’s because it’s a lot less corporate here, and local businesses can’t afford to pay people as much.”
“Besides the university, I don’t think there are any major employers here in town.”
