did any local residents actually apply for those jobs or do they just sit on the couch and wait for the door bell to ring?
The immigrants from all over the world out hustle residents of Detroit Chicago NYC NY for jobs in American cities.
every city I travel to in America l talk to immigrants from all over doing work blacks could do if the blacks just applied for the jobs.
so Blacks have got to look in the mirror and ask what's wrong with this picture.

To hire any substantial number of Detroiters, you's have to create jobs they might qualify for. This could include lunch room attendants, wash room attendants, and greeters.
Marathon is not finding master electricians and plumbers, pipe fitters and chemists applying for their jobs and living in Detroit.
Alternatively, Marathon could seek qualified help elsewhere and pay a king's ransom for them to live inside the Detroit border. So far, prospects have said, "I wouldn't live there for a king's ransom."

Other jobs that Detroit blacks can qualify for are, Parking Lot Speed Bumps, Boat Anchors, Replacing Clay Pigeons for Targets, Hot Air Balloon Ballast, Fill Road Pot Holes With Them, Shark Bait, and if you hang a few of them from trees, they make nice Wind Chimes.
