Moving to Obtain a New Job
Unemployment numbers are improving, but there are still many people without jobs. A rather large number of Americans are moving in order to acquire new jobs. They may have to leave the state they are in to get new jobs. Relocation packages are not usually a part of the move, but families are still going to different states for the jobs. They are in need of these jobs and so no matter what, they have to find a way to get to the new jobs.
The recession is certainly a part of why there are fewer jobs. Right now there are certain states with more jobs than others. There is the potential that moving without a new job could lead to a new job. North Dakota is one state where there are a lot of jobs, but it is also a state many individuals are not keen to move to. Certain moving companies have seen a spike of 7% or more in interstate residential moves.
This is most certainly related to the need for these families to find new jobs. The housing market has also played a part in why people are leaving their current state. When they can find a house in the state closest to their job, for a lot less, it means they will take the opportunity and eventually hope to find a job that is even closer.
