I and my SO want to move out of South Dakota for a variety of reasons. One of which is opportunities. While South Dakota may have the 4th or 5th lowest unemployment rate at 3.9%, the wages suck ass, as do the jobs. It seriously has one of the highest rates of people working 2 or more jobs, I think it's in the top 5 for this too. The rent for a dumpy one room apartment in my area is 800 a month, but wages are averaging around $8.00. McDonald's is paying 9 and they aren't hiring. It's a bit better in Sioux Falls and Rapid City but not a lot.
We have looked into areas in the Carolina's, Floridia, and Tennessee. He likes Florida, he's lived there before and has a sister there. I'm nervous about the weather and the critters and I think I would miss the snow.
So where would you move and why?
