Review of Maine, Maine

The way life is!
Star Rating - 4/3/2020
I've been in Maine of and on my whole life. Maine folks for the most part are not very complicated. The drug epidemic has gotten better I think. If you enjoy shopping I hope you don't mind shopping online because that's about all your gonna get around here. Jobs are few and far between and when you get one the pay is minimal. I've worked at the same job for 19 years never gotten a raise or bonus or even a vacation. No overtime & I only get paid minimum wage. And this is in the healthcare industry. How messed up is that! Good luck when it comes to finding a Good Doctor or mental health professional. The last time I attempted to go the Dr cancelled on me the first 4 times I scheduled it was 8 months before I got in to see her and by then I was so discouraged I gave up and didn't go. all that negative asside Maine is absolutely stunning words can't do justice in the fall. I've lived on the coast and In very rural Maine and I could say positive and negative things about both. But can't we all about everywhere really. Fact is you have to make up your own mind on the subject really. Maine life isn't for everyone. Either way it's a great place to come visit. And you might just find yourself wanting to stay. Good luck!

Hmmmm?? I am in Heath Care as well and have received 4 pay raises in 7 years. I am receiving much above minimum wage. And The Drug Crisis? It has become worse especially during these times of Pandemic. I don’t know where here in Maine you live? You must be poorly trained and or working for the wrong Entity. I don’t know of any Health Care Field that pays below minimum wage. You are paid fairly and given proper raises for a job well done.

Thanks for your words on Maine! How nice to read someone's recent review! I've researched this and come up with conflicts so thought I'd ask a true Maine(r). In one reading it says you have a comfortable dew point so humidity shouldn't be an issue in summer... in another recent weather forecast out of Portland I saw how Maine was having a really humid, uncomfortable summer... my sis says, oh yeah it's humid in summer? I'm from very dry, or very comfortable humid areas... no problems. The only time I experienced a real uncomfortable-humid summer was when I was visiting Michigan, and then the UP. It was awful. I'm from Northern-California coast and, Colorado where I've spent most of my life. Can you please talk to me about humid comfort, or not in Maine- on the coast or inland? Thanks so much if you have the time.
