This would indicate that 83% of the men with incomes under $50,000
WERE boy scouts! I don't think that that is what was meant! That means
that if you were a Boy Scout you have a 50% greater chance of making
LESS than 50,000 than over it! Only 33% of men who make OVER $50,000
were Boy Scouts means that it doesn't make any sense to be a Boy Scout
as most people who make that kind of money WEREN'T Boy Scouts!!!
I don't think all the facts about these statistics are out yet as the
Boy Scouts would NEVER release this kind of NEGATIVE numbers!!!
