Hah, well. That would be a lot of people. Where will they be relocated to? Many of them have no skills. What are they going to do? Where they live is at least cheap. How are they going to pay for living in a place that costs 10 times as much or more?While I see the problems, and I'm not unsympathetic to the plight of people living in these rural areas, is not reasonable to ask what sacrifices others should be expected to make so that they can sustain a lifestyle that's not economically viable? (I was going to use the phrase "enjoy a lifestyle" but, of course, many people in those areas are really struggling, so I doubt they're enjoying it much).
How about offering residents of those areas generous relocation packages, on the basis that, if they don't want to take them, they're on their own?
