    Give up yet?
    How many missed pickups / deliveries?
    Out of hours yet?
    Renting trailers to warehouse freight that should be moving yet?

    50 worst cities to live in

    Go on take it...take it all.

    33. Reading, Pennsylvania
    Population: 87,873
    Median home value: $69,100
    Poverty rate: 38.8%
    Pct. with at least a bachelorís degree: 11.5%
    Once a prosperous industrial center, Readingís economy and standard of living has declined since Reading Company, operator of the main coal transporting railroad in the area, declared bankruptcy in 1971. The city's population declined in the following years but has grown steadily over the past few decades. Still, Readingís population has yet to return to its 1930 peak of 111,000 people.
    Today, Reading is one of the poorest of U.S. cities. Just 11.5% of adults have a bachelorís degree, less than half of the 30.6% national figure. With such low earnings potential, the city's typical household earns just $26.531 a year, less than half the national median household income of $55,775. Reading's poverty rate of 38.8% is the fifth highest of any U.S. city.
    Philly, Camden,Paterson, Springfield, Buffalo,Syracuse, Rochester, Baltimore...all in our delivery areas...terminals in most of them I listed...they're all in there....I only viewed from 51-33 so far. Rotten nation did this too it's people...crooked greedy politicians and corporations and bankers.

    I think for some of the smaller cities on here the closing up of many of the railroads is what done them in.. I live near Port Jervis new York and back in the day it was a big railroad town.. Middle class on both sides of the river.. Well when the railroads pulled out or went out of business the dopey leaders in the town made a deal with the county and slowly the downtown empty houses were being filled with no income welfare people After 40 years it has taken its toll.. Now they have robberies drugs and even murders..But if you look at the big picture IMO it was technology and the interstate system that put a hurting on the railroads.. Another big city up here that has seen its share of poverty is Scranton and for that I would blame the same thing but add in the coal mines that have closed..

    This came up on my home page again.....38.8% poverty rate for Reading PA..What was once an area majorly German has now become 57% Hispanic.
    Cheap labor must be the driving force with the immigration/migration/diversity stuff.
    I believe the Hispanics would organize more willingly than others. It's just a matter of the kind of jobs....which almost may seem to be kinds of jobs which are almost unorganizable temp to part time to third party type jobs....and a lot of them seem like they couldn't pay anything more if they wanted to or were contractually obliged to do so.

    Population: 87,873

    Once a prosperous industrial center, Reading’s economy and standard of living has declined since Reading Company, operator of the main coal transporting railroad in the area, declared bankruptcy in 1971. The city's population declined in the following years but has grown steadily over the past few decades. Still, Reading’s population has yet to return to its 1930 peak of 111,000 people.

Reading's poverty rate of 38.8% is the fifth highest of any U.S. city.
    I, personally think that 11.5% of readings people do not have a bachelors degree...I think it would be closer to 1%.
    And that probably goes for a lot of other areas too......some kind of ideology pushing college must drive that dishonest statement.

    It must be that whole area .. Company I used to work for ,Shoprite Supermarkets closed up the warehouse in this area and moved to Lehigh Valley and since moving have had many problems with gangs in the warehouse.. Allentown to Reading used to be a nice place.. But then again look at the leadership of PA..

    Too many new people is a problem to me. Too many houses being built. Too many shopping centers. Too many distribution centers....Distribution centers and retail jobs will not replace union manufacturing rates....therefore it just becomes more headaches than the whole flooding is worth...2 more traffic lights are being added in the next 2 miles from my house.....so I can first wait for the trains...then wait for the 5-7 lights they put in to go 5 miles to the next major road..........and what does the resident who lived here for 50 years get out of it?

    First they close Redstar which was 10 minutes away and then I drive 22 miles to new Penn then 15% pay cuts with next to no pension contributions.for 11 years..and so far an extra $250/month tacked onto my mortgage for insurance and taxes.
    And wait, wait, wait for all the state required licensing stuff and social security cards and birth certificates and such for my kids.....plus more wear and tear on the roads which will destroy my cars and cost me lots of money all the time.
    There's work here which is Allentown area....but Reading doesn't have too much......Distribution work everywhere around here.....but the pay will never make it an area like it used to be with manufacturing union wages and benefits.....the only thing that seems to keep it all floating is credit and public assistance and 2 must work for a house or apartment....whereas only a man needed to work for good money 40 years ago,
