Is it a crisis yet?

Today's MJS shows a huge gap between median incomes in Milwaukee and Madison.

The gap between median family incomes in Wisconsin's two biggest cities has widened to 80% - $64,264 in Madison compared with $35,765 in Milwaukee - after being less than 10% about 15 years ago, a report released Monday says.

It is time for our politicians, no matter which side of the ailse they are on, to face a few facts. Milwaukee needs jobs and they will never attract these deperately needed jobs until the face the massive crime problem in Milwaukee.

Does Mayor Barrett believe that Milwaukee is in crisis now, or are things just humming along perfectly?
