  • Environmental issues with rapid industrialisation and urbanisation
  • Jobs are often concentrated in core areas creating inequality and rural-to-urban migration
  • Leakage of TNCs (money is sent back to their source country - often an AC - rather than going to the EDC or LIDC)
  • Employees of primary/secondary jobs are often unskilled so loss of jobs means they struggle to find new employment
  • Negative multiplier effect in post-indudstrial areas as workers no longer have disposible income so retail and leisure
