Many people who live in Memphis work two jobs just to make ends meet. I recall a time in my life when I worked at FedEx; many people who worked their were holding down full time jobs. Many people have worked at FedEx, it is supposedly one of the better paying jobs in Memphis, their are other jobs that pay so called good wages but not many. There are less and less jobs in Memphis mostly due to outsourcing, but also because of jobs moving out of the city to other areas. I don’t blame the lack of jobs solely on city leadership and the business people. The citizens of Memphis must educate themselves, they must use their creativity and innovative skills to create jobs for themselves, and this will eliminate poverty.
