My knowledge of the entire scope of jobs is limited. I work in high tech and my particular skills are suited to headquarter offices. The majority of jobs I see are in engineering, manufacturing, or retail. Corporate headquarters for most of the high tech companies are located elsewhere.

Within my personal experiences finding a minimum wage job being a young, white-woman, has not been too difficult in my suburban hometown. Although I know it isn't like that for everyone. There isn't a lot of "work your way to a financially better life" type work. It's mostly just food and mall work.
The houses are primarily owner occupied and the majority are kept up, with a couple of exceptions. There are no vacant or abandoned properties. I feel strongly that the housing has become far too expensive in relation to average salaries.
