If a factory is built near my community, it would carry both advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion there are more disadvantages than advantages. Although Industrial growth brings prosperity and wealth, but at the same time increases pollution and insufficency of available resources.
If a factory is built, it would incease the job oppertunities for the community. People would have more chances to earn better livings. They would spend extra money on thier families, send thier children to good schools for better education, get better health care facilities and would have more money for recreation and enjoyment. These all in turn would increase their living standards. Extra money earned through these jobs, would be spent in other bussinessess that would imrove the overall business of the community.
On the other hand factory would increase the environmental pollution, that would definitely affect the health of the community. This envormental pollution is the most common cause of respiratory diseases, dermatological diseases and cancers of different kinds. Factory attracts people from the neighbourhood for jobs, this would increase the load on available resouces of the community.There would be more competition for accomodations that would increase the rent and daily house hold things would be more expansive. There would be increased load on the public transportation and increased congestion of traffic on roads.
So over all there would be both advantages and disadvantages of building a factory. I am strongly against this plan, as I love my home town very much and want it to be as peaceful and clean as it is now.
