Reasons are many for the conditions in Flint over the years. My research shows that situations such as the major car companies finding cheaper labor elsewhere as over 30,000 autoworkers in Flint, eventually 80,000 in all, and shut down several factories. .

Recession of the 1980s, along with high gas prices also was a reason why plants closed and people lost their jobs. GM's employment began to drop by 1988, with plant closures throughout the 1990s and 2000s including many in Flint.
