We here trapped on the wrong side of the LA County line can only look to Kern Co. with envy.
I live in Kern County, Bakersfield specifically. This article is BS. Almost everyone I know has been laid off at least once in the last couple of years and every one I know that is working works for a company that is cutting back. The cost of living here is cheaper than LA but still expensive. My nephew was just laid off from an oil coompany. If he wants to continue working for them he has to move to Texas. They shut down his crew.
We are overrun with Mexicans and illegals. Parts of town look just like Mexico and you really shouldn’t go there. If you do be ready to duck. We have a huge gang problem and the police are so busy they won’t even come out unless someone is dieing. We are looking to get out ASAP.
