Weegy: Major Job Loss The so-called Rust Belt of manufacturing cities located in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States have suffered tremendous job loss because of globalization and the off-shoring of jobs to lower-wage Asian countries. In cities [ like Detroit, entire neighborhoods have been virtually abandoned, largely because high paying manufacturing jobs have vanished and the workers along with them. In addition, companies that were related to the automobile industry were also forced to close up shop. Even basic services such as grocery stores were adversely affected, as the neighborhood residents who used to shop there moved away. Rapid Changes in Neighborhood Demographics During the 1960s, the phenomenon of white flight became a common occurrence in many urban neighborhoods. White flight occurs when white residents abandon a neighborhood in large numbers because of the increasing presence of individuals or families of color. The presence of nonwhite residents is not the source of urban decay. Instead, urban decay occurs in this instance during the later stages of white flight, when white residents literally abandon their homes, sometimes because they cannot find buyers for them. Decline of Public Housing When public housing first appeared on the urban landscape in the United States, it was seen as a source of transitional housing for individuals and families who were establishing themselves financially, including returning veterans. However, with the passing of the Brooke Amendment by Congress, the mandate of public housing changed, so that public housing was only available to those with very low or even no incomes. Without funds to maintain aging housing stock, and high concentrations of very poor residents, public housing developments became decrepit and dangerous, and a major center of urban decay in many cities. Slumlords Absentee landlords in very poor areas who fail to keep their properties maintained are known in popular terms as slumlords. Slumlords have been a factor in urban decay in the U.S. for many decades. In the late 19th century and early 20th centuries, ethnic enclaves were often filled with buildings owned by slumlords, who spent little or no money or effort to maintain them. ]
