  • DH considered out of the country. He was looking at King Abdullah University in Dubai. He's a computer tech.

    Mechanics can make good money practically anywhere! It's a great skill that will always be in demand.

  • My SIL in moving from Portland, OR to Utah because the cost of living is so much lower and there is a lot of really great resources for single mom's. I know Arizona is a lot like Utah, also, and the cost of living has a BIG effect on the wages...

  • NY state sucks. do not move here. the taxes are outrageous. our governor is anidiot, and continues to lay on taxes. our state senate has been f-ing around for a month arguing about who has the power, and basically getting nothing done except adding more taxes and fees and BS. If youlive in NY but not the city, everything is crumbling around us. jobs are going away, taxes are crazy, government does not care to do anything but make it worse.

    We are seriously considering moving to canada because my dh and dd's have dual citizenship.

  • AZ is one of the top 5 hardest hit states in the US as far as the economy goes. The list (in no particular order) is CA, AZ, TX, FL and MI. Those are definitely places I would NOT consider going to and hope to find a job. Now if he has one already lined up, that's different, but don't pick up and move there on a hope and a prayer.

  • I think the poor economy is everywhere right now. I know my bro is a mechanic who was making soo much that he just went to commission based and now with the economy soo poor, he's not getting any work or money. :(
