The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
BAYTOWN TEXAS, is ALSO EAST of Houston and is home to one of the LARGETS PETROCHEMICAL PLANTS IN THE US.
Houston ? Its one of the FEW Cities in America that has actually added jobs under this incompetent President.
Would it kill you to Google and not post arbitrary nonsense ?

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
One thing about Houston, if there ever was a full on thermo-nuclear holocaust, those who live here would have to quickly accept that they would not be among the survivors.
This City and it's surrounding petro-chemical plants is ground zero for at least 5 - 40 megaton ICBMs.
But, I've learned to accept that unlikely actuallity, as this City has weathered through recession after and usually winds up taking in people from the plague Blue States and Cities.
After the Governments in those Cities, "sucked off the system" to the point of collapse.

In addition businesses aren't in business to employ people, they are started by private citizens with the idea of making a profit. Making a profit often means hiring people and hires a lot of employees. Now if you want to pay people what you think they deserve then start your own business. How about telling me what a cashier at Walmart should make in your utopian world? What do you think Walmart does with its profits?
