Bucking the trend

Suddenly I don't feel so old anymore. This is how I always remembered New Orleans "bucking the trend."

We make less in New Orleans than most people in the nation.  That's the word from a new federal report.

"The mean wage for all occupations in New Orleans was $20.40 per hour in May 2012, compared to the national average of $22.01," according to the  Bureau of Labor Statistics.
