Hi everyone,
I am looking for a small town in the NW US for me and my family to move to. I located Republic Wa. and it seems like what we are looking for. I have been looking around online for more info on your town. I would like to know about rental properties and work. Can anyone give me some info? Whats average rent prices for a 2 BR. What is work like there? I have some college education and alot of work experience that ranges from logging to I.T. work. Just to be able to get started i am willing to take a job in fast food.

Yes, rentals are very tough to come by. Fast food jobs are even tougher...as (thankfully) there are no "fast food" restaurants in the entire county.

Jobs are tough here as well. The rumor is that close to 70% of the county is on some form of welfare or another, but it wouldn't be nearly so bad if the state (read: coastal liberals) didn't put such a stranglehold on Ferry County.

Unfortunately, the Seattle metro area, with a huge advantage in population, forces the more remote areas to live by their rules, even though the way of life and needs of the community are far different.

wow, sounds like West Virginia. I just moved from there to Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs is even worse than Wv. I have been here 2 months and still cant find work. I have applied for at least 20 jobs online from marketing to mcdonalds and havent heard anything. I papered the city by hand with some 15-20 applications and thats not working either. i guess this recession isnt just in a few states. Makes me wonder what im going to do to support my family in the following months.
