    Overall Experience: To many people so no peace
    • 4
    Overall Experience: Its gender neutral and accepting. Stores accept all races and respect cultures
    • 3
    Employment: Because of the large verity of businesses in my area, finding a job does not seem too difficult. However, many places do not say whether they are hiring or what positions are open.
    • 4
    Local Businesses: There are a good amount of local businesses around my area, however, they have been at a decline for some years now. This is because of the rising taxes and property costs make opening and running a small, independent business a lot harder than it used to be. The end result is numerous big business stores but a decreased amount of smaller stores

    Crime & Safety: Police are violent in this country tho. So im not sure
