Back in the 50's and 60's many of the workers at all of those plants did live in Burlington. It was a backwater where the labourers could afford to buy a home with a yard. The CEO's lived in Hamilton which, at the time, was the place to be. Of course the eighties brought a downturn that didn't affect Burlington but left Hamilton with an aging housing stock and the flight of anyone who could afford a house as far from Burlington street as possible.
