A shortage on housing has driven rental prices up so high that lower income families have been priced out. But, despite the mantra of “jobs, jobs, jobs,” most of the workers needing rentals are from out-of-state.

Wow, that's really a deluxe man camp. In Arkansas, the out of state workers that are filling our "jobs, jobs, jobs" live in a modern day Shanty town of RV's. It's swell having neighbors like that!
I'm sure it's a strategic plan to
Increase your property values. Really. Trust me.

Every town needs a man camp. It's the American way and your patriotic duty to support all man camps where they are keeping us safer by making us energy independent.
