I remember Hyundai plant opening near me around early to mid 2000s. It was a huge deal for the area. Options were either crime, minimum wage service jobs, or have the means to go to college, move out and get a higher paying job. We were told guaranteed $50K+ salaries and on the job training.

Almost 20 years later, they are hiring at lower wages than what was supposedly offered from start and relying on illegal child migrant labor.

Sad to see.

Sounds a lot like the American dream. Let the people work hard with promises of if you work hard you will be rewarded. Money just goes to the top and stays there instead.

Not like that everywhere but it’s soooooooo common.
