Michiana doesn’t seem to be Going anywhere

The review from 2015 is pretty spot on. I can try to give a 2018 update. There have been some improvements but only in blue collar jobs in Elkhart area and other areas. And in healthcare as always.The main issue is the people here are pretty narrow minded, low class, overly suspicious, political and complexed. And this is from retail to corporate. I can only speculate the reason, maybe it’s a lifetime and culture of dealing with blue collar people which is less professional. 90% of the blue collar people I have dealt with here, whether it’s a plumber coming to my house or a person working at retail, are either pissed at their job or on some strong drugs. Doesn’t seem like a campus town at all. Norte dame is completed integrated in the city and is the most congested in the whole area. Parking there is a nightmare. Only good parts are in the north. Granger, areas around grape road and some districts in north south bend. West and south are really bad and it’s sad to see such derelict houses and people living in such poverty. And Elkhart neighborhoods are really bad too inspite of the projected economic ‘miracle’Weather is bad, nothing much to do here. Looot of old folks here which is why the medical industry thrives here. Drugs and prescription medications are rampant.Speaking of jobs, there is a big discrepancy. Doctors are attracted here for many reasons. On the other side mostly blue collar, minimum wage, odd jobs or lower end secretary administrative type positions. Not much in between. If the mayor wants to get the service industry in, like technology and banking etc and improve the michiana area, he has to deal with and punish companies and employers here who deal in nepotism, favoritism, politics, borderline illegal ways of hiring and firing. This is everywhere in the world but is a bit too much here for no apparent reason other than the bad attitude of the people and the reasons mentioned above. Right now, proffesionals are being pushed out instead of being attracted to this area.
