A few weeks ago I posted that my hubby was put on paid furlough. Today, they found out that over 300 people will be let go, he still has no clue if he'll get called back or not. So he asked where "don't" I want to live, as he begins to send out resumes. I can rule out several states off the top of my head. So where would you "not" want to live???
If I had my choice, I'd be as close to the ocean as possible, but at this point in time, with the economy as it is, I'd say we go where ever there is a job!!!!
So this steered me far away from my 30 day hub writing. Maybe all my hubs will be about how to stop worrying in 12 easy steps.
I am from the south, so I wouldn't want to live anywhere where I had to shovel snow. That is something I couldn't get used to.
Jane, I don't have the links in front of me, but there are several news sites out there that have published the places LEAST hit by the recession and MOST hit by the recession. I would start there and whittle it down according to your likes and dislikes.
I am so sorry about hubby's furlough. Keep us all posted.
I just was looking at some of that information, in what I found our state is one of the least hit. Which is GREAT news.
I truly will not mind if we have to leave Minnesota - yes, where you have to shovel. Just last weekend, had the mittens on for a morning soccer game
Thanks for all your input/support
The south is great, but some places are hard to find jobs. Snow would not be my choice. I have lived where it snows and hated it only because I didn't know how to deal with it. The heat is also terrible in the south sometimes. I think that middle Georgia would be good for weather. I would not want to live right on the ocean and I have lived about 30 minutes from the ocean, but you have to deal with all of the storms and outrageous prices if you live on a popular beach. Not to mention tourists and all the big events that make you have to deal with all of the heavy traffic.
I live in PA. It sucks here. My husband has been on unemployment for about 18 months. There are noooo jobs hiring anyplace.
I would have to agree PA sucks. The north western forests are beautiful, but not a good state to live in!
And the only reason I can afford internet is because its included in my rent. I pay my landlords utilities for his computer business. Nice aint it..
Summer - Either Southwestern or Northern Ontario
Winter - Arizona, U.S.A.
I'm Canadian and I hate cold and snow.
YIKES!!! I just realized that I'd gotten caught up in the posts about shoveling snow and posted where I want to live rather than the reverse.
Okay, try again.
I would not want to live in Canada one more winter. Nor would I care to live in a third world country for obvious reasons or any state that has cold and snow like we have here.
Think that covers it globally.
Best of luck to your and your hubby in the job search!
It is really tough all over. Luckily my husband works in health care. People always get sick, but even some hospitals have had hiring freezes. I don't know of any place that hasn't suffered somewhat.
Although I love the West Coast I would not recommend it as we are still nose diving with the recession and we are one of the hardest hit areas in the U.S. There are more people unemployed then there are jobs. My job is solid but we do have a hiring freeze which is unfortunate.
I live in South Florida. A lot of people hate it, but I love it. I live 5 minutes from the beach. Yes it is expensive. It is very diverse down here, you learn a lot about people. Great food, always something going on. The east coast of Florida is great because you have big cities and suburbs all up and down. West coast is more relaxed and not as dense. My uncle lives in N. Dakota, no thanks! We have also been hit hard though because we lost a lot of tourism. My dad lost his job and is currently working a temp job for like half the pay. Unemployment here has a cap of $275 a week. Better than nothing, but not possible for a family of 5.
Depends how much you want to spend. I love it here in North Jersey. You wouldn't know the country is doing bad because everyone from my town pays $30,000 property taxes and drive Lexus'. Our winters are the only thing that would drive me to the South. I would not move anywhere North of New Jersey because of the harsh winters. (Franklin Lakes, NJ or Wayne, NJ)
Nowhere in the southeast of the US. Too hot and humid. I'd prefer dry heat it I had the choice.

Average tuition at four-year public colleges in the U.S. climbed 6.5 percent, or $429, to $7,020 this fall as schools apologetically passed on much of their own financial problems, according to an annual report from the College Board, released Tuesday. At private colleges, tuition rose 4.4 percent,...

Do you think a conservative government would lead us back into a recession?
