      The slave factories in Hoptown are the main source of income for most people. Even those who have degrees have had to work in the factories because that's all there was available. The local government gives incentives to the slave factories to come there but don't seem to work hard to recruit more restaurants and retail establishments. It took them forever to get a ChikFila. The wages are a joke unless you work in the slave factories. The medical industry is a little better with opportunities and wages. The "unjustice" system continues to grow and has received new buildings. If the local government spent SOME time going into the "bad" neighborhoods and talking to the people to find out what they need and providing the need, these neighborhoods could also get better. But hey if they did that who would the police have to arrest?
      The educational system has a lot to be desired as well. Teacher pay across the state MUST be increased. Teacher to student ratio MUST be decreased. Tutoring for students who NEED it MUST be provided at no cost.
      The local government REALLY NEEDS to have a SERIOUS team of business recruiters to go out and bring in businesses who want to place a store there to help grow the town, the economy, and create BETTER jobs.
      Bottom line - Hoptown has the potential to be an AWESOME little town but a lot and I do mean a lot will have to change in order for it to become such.

      Ok place to retire or raise a family as long as you stay away from the bad neighborhoods. Very small town, everybody knows everybody. Not the best schools
