It is about the flow of money. Much of that employment flow has been diverted to other states and countries.
If you, you being a wealthy, rich or doing all right person don't understand what people are talking about perhaps you have a better relationship with things.
So here are some things. These are called empty stores. Stores that had an owner and employees. They don't have them any more. When folks are unemployed their discretionary shopping money vaporises. That means they can't go shopping.
No shoppers means no customers. No customers means no business.No business tax. No business to business purchases. Nothing.
You may have all the shopping options you can handle. When a community has lost too many vendors or merchants in an area you have a dying city.Or a bunch of blocks with nothing but empty window.
I have nothing more to add.
It is just a visual observation. Also my Day 12 VloMo video.
