The jobs are leaving so you have to follow where the work is going. Also taxes and the cost to live, including housing basics, is more than 20X a typical laborers wages. The transportation systems are clogged if you want to get to work. Shopping is minimal so it’s on-line or probably nothing. If you have property you have to get a permit and only used licensed workers to have ANYTHING done on your own property (too costly so we do it ourselves and are now criminals).
I can go on and on.
