Our local radio station and newspaper are full of help wanted ads. Needed are nurses, truck drivers, teachers, plumbers, managers and general laborers. We are not alone. Many small cities and towns are looking for people to replace aging employees. The wages may not be as high as the big city, but the costs are not either. Fringe benefits include no rush hour traffic and neighbors who care about you. We may not have a Walmart close by, but I bet there is one within the same driving distance you currently go to shop. You want fresh food? We grow it here!
Sometimes you may have trouble finding a job for your spouse in the same town, but instead of a rush hour commute, you can drive peaceful country roads for the same or less distance. Friendly neighbors and stores where the workers will know you by name are other fringe benefits. Instead of worrying about crime, we worry about weather. Retirement in a small town is less expensive too. You may already have family in the area and they will be glad to have you back.
So if you are tired of the city rush, consider coming back to the country. We have a job waiting for you.
