Escaping Pennsylvania ASAP - 10/10/2021
I've lived in PA for 26 years and I've been ready to leave for some time.
PA made the top 10 for property tax, is ranked number 13 for hazardous pollution, not even in the top 50% for median wage. They currently have the 3rd highest fuel tax, though they were number one for some time. Lowest floor income (minimum wage) in the Read More

I moved back to Pennsylvania in 2008 so my wife could be close to her family and I found a job at halliburton rather quickly they got my cdl for me I lost that job in 2012 it took a year but I was given a job at universal well service that lasted till 2015 at both jobs my average income was enough to keep my wife at home to be a mother (her choice).

Williamsport - 8/16/2015
I wouldn't recommend anyone relocating to consider to move to Williamsport. This little town trying to be a city is definitely not a good environment, specially for family with kids. There are a lot of drugs on the streets, heroin specially, and drive by shootings specially at the downtown parks. Since the gas companies the cost of living went up so much that is almost impossible to rent, specially compared to the income and jobs that the town has to offer. All the city cares is College kids that leave their money at Pennsylvania College of Technology, little league in the summer, and the local hospital (Susquehanna health system). The security provided by the police is slow and deficient, and so does the judicial system. It's sad to say that the town has dramatically changed for the worst in the last decade. Read More
