An unusual unemployment crisis in the Midwest has reached such unprecedented levels that some counties have resorted to luring in college graduates by offering financial incentives, like free land or partially-paid rent in hopes of filling vacant job openings. The U.S. labor market is at the tightest it’s been in nearly two decades, with the national unemployment rate falling to a 17-year-low of 3.9% in April.

North Platte, Nebraska began offering prospective employers $10,000 to relocate; Hamilton, Ohio is offering a payment of $5,000 to help with student loans; St. Clair County, Michigan recently raised its student-loan scholarships from $10,000 to $15,000 for students willing to relocate; and Marne, Iowa has a free-lots program that gifts newcomers a free piece of land to build a home on.

Don't know why they have to move people, Rosebud Indian Reservation is just north of North Platte, just move the jobs a little bit north so the residents can get to them. As for Marne, Iowa, Gods, it's fewer then 120 people....in the middle of nowhere, why on earth would I want to move there? I got nowhere where I can live now, and it's prettier, and not so flat.

In Pittsburgh I heard a steel company running job advertisements on the radio, $27/hour, full healthcare and pension! I NEVER thought that would happen again. The Trump economy has exceeded all expectations!

Steel like coal jobs can sometimes be on shaky ground there PA...one day you're bringing home the bacon, next, you're laid off with nothing.

Tsal prefers the comfort and security of a guaranteed job provided by the government...because he's a traditional Conservative of course.
