There's another middle missing in Spokane. We have a bit of an age gap. Spokane seems to be made up predominantly of people in, or nearing, retirement, and young people working minimum wage jobs as they pay their way through school (hopefully). Then the young flee to a good paying job in another city. What can Spokane do to attract good paying jobs? "Careers"? What can Spokane do to retain the people it is educating at so many local college campuses? Come up with an answer to that question and malls, restaurants, and other businesses in the middle will have a healthy future in Spokane.
