Social design issue

In this world today, there are many different social design issues. What stood out the most for me was the increasing number of work forces in a low-income area. According to statistics, major businesses and companies are mainly around downtown areas and suburban areas. All the high paying jobs are where the high-income families live. They place major businesses and companies there because that’s where they know, they will make the most profit. I do not believe they should specifically place major work forces in certain areas.

One way to solve this problem is by adding more major businesses in low-income neighborhoods for people who come from a low-income family, to have a chance to work in that type of environment. Since some low-income families cannot provide transportation for themselves, having a workforce close to home would be very helpful. Not only do they get to travel a short distance to work, but it would also allow them to save money on transportation.

Another way to go about this is to add more affordable housing near major companies. If low-income families can afford to live in a nice neighborhood, they could also find a nice job close to home. That would allow them to pay for their mortgage or rent and still be in a respectful environment.
