They recently shuddered their nuclear plant which provided some decent work. Its really full of small cottage type industries that appeal to tourists. So it leaves the young sort of shaking their heads when it comes to choosing to live there. They also have had unusual zoning restrictions so they dont have any large supermarket stores or box stores as it violates their laws. Instead they have many small town grocers or country stores. Burlington is the major city but still not a ton of shopping. Like I said, one would have to have some sort of want to live there in the first place.
    If a nuclear power plant starts shuddering, it's time to vamoose!

    Just sayin'.

    I'd consider moving there, if Vermont wasn't full of varmints.


    That is what the state is named after, right?

    How wicked! There are probably naked polygamists there! It sounds like a completely Godless state, to me! Hippie communes full of sodomites, no doubt!


    I'm planning my next vacation now.

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.
    I'd do it for 10k / yr for 10 years.

    My Dad had one of those back in the 1960ís! He was really advanced! I did not even bother with cable until the 1990ís. I was too busy to watch. And am about ready to get one of those things they have on the market. WIFI is more importatant than Cable.
