If you live north of the Volvo Line in Maine, and you enjoy the slower paced way of life, but can't afford to make ends meet... I have a simple solution for you...
Move to rural New Hampshire.
No income tax.
No sales tax... You're over here shopping already. I see your plates at the wal-mart.
And with a little work, you can find a town with MUCH lower property taxes.
I believed that lie for many years... It's not true.
Moultonborough pays less than $10 per $1000 valuation.
Hale's Plantation pays about $5.
Everyone over here is looking for help. There's not enough people to fill the quality jobs.
A hotel in North Conway is paying new hires $20/hr to clean rooms.
The jobs real Americans don't want I guess.
I love Maine... But it's so messed up... And with the items you passed last November, it's going to get worse.
