As a resident of upstate NY since the early 70s, I take offense of the comment that the people in this state are lazy and wont work and live on the government handouts! When will upstate NY stop getting a bad reference because of the large amount of welfare recepients in NYC? I came here from Ct originally, and from what i see here in the upstate central NY area, is that most people are harder workers and more accomplished than anywhere else ive been! Most people are working two or more jobs and most are commuting at least 30 miles one way to those jobs! I am so tired of upstate Ny getting a bad rap because of the bottom feeder of NYC that is being supported by the hard working people of upstate! If not for Upstaters, the city wouldnt exist
