Company Towns

I read an article today that stated Facebook is creating a company town out in California for their workers. It will have some relatively affordable housing and all the amenities. I kind of cringe when I see these things, because company towns of the past were not usually nice places. Workers tended to be confined to company owned housing and stores, and often became indebted to their bosses. This does not sound to me like a way to go. Written by Paul Dribin
