"Yous" in quite common in Buffalo, NY (here spelled "youze") among people with Irish and Polish but not Italian ancestry (our three major ethic groups). I read somewhere yous is carryover from Irish Gaelic second person plural pronoun that was picked up by some, although not all, who were learning English at the same time and heard the "example."
