Re: 1000's Drawn to North Dakota

DrFumblefinger ·
I have not done that, Rob, but I do have some friends in North Dakota. The wages are good, but before anyone makes the jump there, be sure you understand the cost of housing and such. Apartments and homes are in short supply and expensive. But as you pointed out, so is labor. So if you can share an apartment with someone and are willing to work more than 40 hours a week, you can save a nice stash of cash. Don't just go. Educate yourself. There are excellent job opportunities in the Dakotas,...

Yes DrFumblefinger, housing looks like a major issue there. And North Dakota can have harsh weather that one doesn't want to get stuck outside in. It is nice though to hear of places with more jobs than people

Just checked the unemployment rate. North Dakota's is the lowest in the nation. In Aug 2013, it was 3.0%. Neighboring South Dakota's is 3.8%, as it too benefits from the oil boom.

Amazing that the unemployment rate for Williston is only .9%! I was unaware that South Dakota had the benefits too.Just goes to show you the recession was not uniform.

A lot of people who went there are now packing out. The Salvation Army is trying to help people - who cannot afford the cost of living in these places - "escape" from boomtown. http://money.cnn.com/2013/01/1...html?iid=SF_PF_River I see ads in the Indianapolis Craigslist for people wanting RVs and travel trailers to take the Dakotas and Montana. Makes me wonder where they will park them when they arrive, how they will stand the winter, and if they did any research into the cost of living...

Had I know such a good-looking almond croissant was at stake, I would have flown to SF to help you celebrate your natal day, PM! Belated happy birthday, and thanks for sharing this trip with us.

Thanks DrF. So then, should we go to such a place together sometime, it had better not have just one almond croissant left. It could get ugly. I know what a gentleman you are, but everyone has their limits.

Precisely. But I am also easily distracted in a bakery such as this, so I might just let that almond croissant slide by as I reach for a slice of black forest cake!
