Oh, that is so weirdly gross...

Some how, I feel that this is so wrong, but the way it was presented makes is it seem alright... THe only thing I can compare this too is low income living in America like 'Project Homes.'

The fact how the emphasize integrating low income workers with the high-end community, yet the effort is to make them invisible seem just humanizing... As if they are saying "these poor people shouldn't be seen, they don't matter but only ruin things, so we should hide them away."

But how can I protest, this is done practically everywhere. I mean, as much as we are sensitive to the subject, or may not like it, some one has to do the menial jobs and get the low-end rent for it...

This is so clearly intended as satire, or social commentary. But the line between present satire and future reality is often breached.
