MIDWEST/ RUST BELT

By: Dakota Crawford

The Rust Belt

The rust belt is in the north-east part of America in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit, etc.

It is called the rust belt because it used to be a booming industrial part of America with many factories. The factories recently shut down because of advancements in technology and cheaper labor in Asia.Now many people there live in poverty because of the loss of jobs so people had to move elsewhere to find work.
