Geelong after Ford: a temporary identity crisis or terminal decline?

"There are so many empty, boarded-up shops in Geelong, I don't really go there anymore," said Stonehurst, who lives in nearby Clifton Springs. "It's dying. With all of the factories closing down, it's only going to get worse. People are devastated. I know it's meant to be progress, but I don't really like it. Where are 260 people from Target going to get jobs in Geelong? It's going to be very hard."
