  1. I don’t feel bad for most of these people in the large cities. I stay 1.5 hour outside of Atlanta, and jobs are overflowing. A new Caterpillar plant is opening soon (900+) new employees needed. I have cousins in Atlanta that REFUSE to leave even though employment is horrible….simply because they love the nightlife and they don’t like change.
