Fewer than 7 percent of Baltimoreans earn more than $150,000 a year, while a third of city residents have annual incomes below $25,000.It’s those depressing numbers that earned Baltimore the number six spot on CBS’s ranking of America’s poorest cities. CBS blames our relatively high cost of living  and low job growth rate (despite all those Amazon/casino jobs). Rounding out the rest of the top 5 are:

5. Tucson, AZ

4. Memphis, TN

3. Philadelphia, PA

2. Milwaukee, WI

1. Detroit, MI
