There are people with family obligations that require them to stay in Nowheresville

Than they're lucky there's even a Walmart for them to work at - seeing as how Walmart started in rural areas that other retailers didn't want to service.

Essentially what you're talking about is entitlement - that someone in the US is entitled to a job where ever they want to live - no matter how remote.

Try and keep in mind some of us are immigrants or the children of immigrants, so we do know what family members have had to do to move to find work - in a whole different country with language barriers, leaving behind everything that was familiar to them. Some of us born and raised in America know we're no better than our immigrant parent, and we might have to move in order to find work or build a decent life. And some feel entitled to that decent life simply by where they were born.
