How Many in Nevada County Have an Average Income of $170,000?

Russ Steele

Although the U.S. government has spent thousands of dollars subsidizing every Chevy Volt that comes off the assembly line, American consumers are voting with their pocketbooks by passing it by.

The few who have bought Volts have an average income of $170,000 and buy them more as trophies of their politically correct green bona fides than for transportation.

The median income in Nevada County is $57,121, that is a long way from $170,000.

The median income in the state is $60,883, still a long way from $170,000.

If you see any trophy Volts in Nevada County, take a picture and send it to this blog, especially if you see one hooked up to a charging station.

    Nevada County may not be close to the $170K average but within the walls of The Rood Center there are scores of government employees being paid over $100K according to the My Nevada County website:
