In Mount Holly proper income inequality had become evident by 1980 as non-Hispanic whites earned an average income that was 1.6 times greater than Latinos or Hispanics and almost 2 times greater than African Americans earning an average income that was only 62% of what non-Hispanic European Americans earned in Mount Holly. Incomes have continued to rise for all groups over time. As of 2007 44% of African Americans families lived in poverty as did 38% of Latino or Hispanic families while only 12% of non-Hispanic white European American families lived in poverty according to data published by the U.S Census Bureau. According to a study done by Edwin Rubenstein incomes in Mount Holly have risen for all groups over time but disparities still remain between different groups earning power especially between Caucasian Males who earn 97 cents for every dollar earned by an African American Male while Caucasian Females earn $1.04 for every dollar earned by their African American counterparts.

Education levels also play a role with 29 percent of those over 25 having a college degree or higher while only 18 percent have not finished high school. Educational attainment levels have increased over time as well with only 12 percent having a college degree or higher in 1980 compared to 29 percent in 2007. These statistics show how much room for improvement exists within Mount Holly especially when it comes to uplifting minorities out of poverty through increasing educational opportunities and level of attainment as well as working towards equalizing earnings between genders and races within our city limits so that all may experience the same opportunities for success regardless what group they identify with ethnically or racially.
