Beautiful area, with over 300 days a year of sunshine. Many retirees - mainly from California make their home. A lot of very wealthy people - just look at Picacho Hills, Sonoma Ranch, Baylor Canyon, and Talavera. Also a lot of very poor people - migrant farm workers, retail and restaurant workers, and some students at the state university. So socioeconomic picture is a dumbbell - a lot of rich and a lot of poor. Not a great deal in the middle. Retirees from West Coast brought their money, and politics, but very few have actually created businesses that have created jobs that pay a living wage. That is the reason (west coast money) there are three Super Wal Marts, and all the other Big Boxes represented - Target, Kohls, Lowes, Home Depot. None of these Big Boxes pay very much, except for a few select few individuals that somehow have "made" it in retail. Government may be the biggest single employer in the area (dona Ana County) that has a regular M-F schedule with good benefits. But "getting" in depends greatly on being born there, knowing the "right" people, and being in the right place at exactly the "right" time. The amount of agencies is staggering - the state, county, city, border patrol, post office, public schools, the university, it seems almost endless. Most of these public workers would place in the "rich" end of the dumbbell, due to their job security and benefits. How to fix? Seems almost impossible. The tendency of the area to support candidates and positions that support even more government is the reason that the area may never diversify and have a good economy with private sector jobs that pay, and have a career path.
