I had to chuckle when i saw the population was listed at 22k+ and the median home price at 72k+. thats so deceptive. Johnstown people work for mostly minimum wage. At least a third of the population doesn't even make 15K a year.
72K homes are in westmont and richland- which isn't part of the 22K+ population. In the city you can buy a home for a few thousand dollars, but it won't be a nice home.Most homes in johnstown are ramshakle with aluminum siding.
If you can be happy in a $25,000 home and make minimum wage, johnstown is for you.
The town is so politically corrupt that all the businesses left the area. And no new business is stupid enough to move in unless you are in bed with the corrupt congressman and other politicans.
Biggest employer is the hospital. second biggest may be the newspaper with it's 110 employees- including paperboys.
