If Amazon gets billions in tax breaks, brings it's own highly paid people, pays the minimum wage to locals... I wouldn't want in where I live either. No one can live half way decently on the minimum wage/no benefits. That's what Amazon pays most non-office workers.
I'm glad the economy is simmering along. Maybe some day it will reach those living in tents and broken down MHs and RVs. Meanwhile all those new low-wage jobs don't seem to be lifting anyone out of poverty or getting them into decent homes or apts. Not everyone has a wealthy parent or parents to take them in until that day comes.
