Review of Elk Grove, California

Lighter Traffic, Fewer Employed People?
Star Rating - 6/6/2009
We live in Elk Grove, CA. For years, it has been a pretty nice place to live but recently we have seen gang writing and groups of kids hanging out in our little park..... Our business in Fair Oaks, Sacramento County, is very slow. We are working longer hours and making half the money we used to make. We have been in business for 18 years here and residents for over 40 years. Many stores have closed and business buildings are vacant. It seems unemployment is probably much higher than the reported 11%. We would like to retire but we can't.... very sad.
