    Montpelier or Burlington don't offer much or that much? Really, I don't know I've only been to Vermont once.

Vermont has an aging population and is trying to lure workers in with $10,000 bonuses.

    Calling all remote workers: Vermont has a deal for you.

    The state has a new law that will pay workers to move there and work remotely. Governor Phil Scott*signed the legislation on Wednesday.

    Eligible workers can get up to $5,000 a year, not to exceed $10,000 over two years, through the state's new remote worker grant program.
    Too bad Vermont isn't closer to the border, because then your state would benefit as so many other states do from the glut of low skill workers flooding the labor market and driving wages down for legal workers. If immigration laws were properly enforced wages would rise everywhere, instead of border states getting away with low wages while Vermont can not. But as it is, Vermont is getting the short end of the stick; it's an un-level playing field.

    I'd like to do that but I can't make a rose bush bloom. I would starve.

    If there is a glut of laborers driving down wages in the US, then why is the unemployment rate so low?
