TOEFL Essay - big companies want to build factories in your town

Q. Somebody wants to build a big factory in your town. Do you support or oppose this plan?

If somebody were to come along wanting to construct a large workplace in my hamlet, I would suggest to them that the more the merrier, but also that it depends what their workplace will bring to my township.

Buildings populate my village's surface. Wherever a surfeit of ground exists, an enterprising young person is always present with plans and a clipboard, just anxious to map out the territory and change its geography. I wouldn't build walls between myself and this person. Instead, what can we do in our power to welcome them? I would participate in every step of the planning process, and it would be in this way my voice would be audible. As an actively participating newcomer, whose voice would big business most likely adhere to? The one or the many? A committee of concerned citizens comprised of townspeople often speeds up construction.

What is happening in the workshops and on the tables? What is there contained? Even adults need to satisfy their mouth curiosity under their noses. If we ask a question, an answer put silence back into our faces. Companies that offer tours to fascinated locals provide valuable feedback. A business tailors its operations to suggestions based on the demographics of its flagship. Telling us about what truly will transpire within those walls is not a privacy issue. Good narrative might leave questions, but workplaces must force meaning. Those in the uncertainty business debate this. A factory is no person without privacy, because factories do not possess consciousness, and employ no cover to hide the workings underneath. In a workplace, all is shown so that the quickest solution can be discovered. The more clothing, the longer the fix of any issue that a factory might face. Therefore, as long as we know what rests inside our buildings, a full welcome is respectable.
