Review of Bakersfield, California

Beware of the Lords of Bakersfield
Star Rating - 11/19/2018
I've been in this area almost 50 years.
I have encountered two classes of people here: the salt of the earth, give you the shirt off their backs and THE LORDS OF BAKERSFIELD.
You can google and read all about it.
Bakersfield is a good place to make a fortune and get out. There is money to be made here. If you are okay working and going home, you will do fine here. Of course, there are a lot of bars (not my thing.)
There are some safe organizations you can get involved in, and there are others run by opportunists who couldn't make it in bigger cities. One has to beware and trust one's gut. If you are not careful, you will get sucked into someone's personal little kingdom. There are a couple of megachurches I would advise you to avoid.
