5 C’s of ARIZONA
Anyone growing up in Arizona from the 1950s through the 1970s knows about the five C’s. If your parents or grandparents grew up in Arizona, they can tell you about them. Do you know what they are?
The Five C’s are: Copper, Cattle, Cotton, Citrus and Climate.
|In the early years of the state, the five C’s were very important for jobs. Agriculture (farming), ranching and mining jobs helped bring people here to work and play.
These kinds of jobs are not as big in the Arizona economy as they once were, but they still play a role in the state’s economy. Learn more about the Five C’s below.
