The electorates of both Lyne and Cowper suffer from these economic conditions where smaller amounts of industries compared to larger cities created limited opportunities for jobs and careers.

Many people leave the region to try better jobs or education in the large cities. Sometimes this works other this it does not. Even obtaining educational qualifications does not assure your chances locally or elsewhere.
