I’ve lived in Fayetteville, AR, all my life. It’s a wonderful town – it’s listed in the top five for several categories in the “small markets” category. What I love about it: Lots of parks and greenspace, vibrant culture and diversity, lots of community events and the surrounding natural beauty.
But my problem is that I just can’t get ahead here. There aren’t many good jobs – most jobs are in the service sector, which don’t pay. The state laws are really biased against employees and tenants – we have no rights.
I have a master’s degree in journalism and I can’t find a job. So I’m thinking of relocating. I’ve always been attracted to San Fran, but I simply can’t afford it. Any suggestions for similar cities that have good economies?
