    Where steel was once produced bringing high paid jobs and bringing money into Cleveland. Now there is retail providing low wage jobs and money leaving the city.

    How can this be sustainable?

    It is not sustainable. Great Nations do not have forgotten rust-belts.

    The question is what government policy and business planning causes these problems and how do you fix them?

    Several years ago somebody floated a plan to revitalize the downtown. It was called the jobs and housing plan. Sounds good. However, when looking at the plan, All of the jobs would be restaurant and retail. All of the housing would be for people making $100k and up.

    It was like WTF? How is that going to work?

    Democrats refuse permits for manufacturing that will omit carbon, that means all middle class jobs are gone, millions forced on welfare.

    The reason many states and cities experience job growth is they have become very business friendly. High taxed states and cities usually do not do well. High crimes rates do not help very much either.

    That's the question. Most manufacturing is not that dirty.
