Sorry, no featured properties currently.
Perhaps if you've never left, you are not qualified to weigh in on a comparison.
Paid for my own bachelor's from YSU, and work in the trades-skills in plumbing, electrical, roofing, tiling, construction, and landscape.
Run my own business currently.
Getting a job in this area is NOT the problem. Getting a GOOD job is.
I work for good people, NEVER EVER the one percent, ever again. Let those entitled "whiners' learn how to do something of value for themselves.
Greed for money skimmed of the back of working people is not a skill. It's a choice.
Sorry if I don't smile while being wrung out !

If you think you know crime now, just let those crumbs get a little smaller...
Rage is building as the wealth continues to separate.
Enjoy your fancy restaurants while you can Mr. Welsh.
They're here for your natural gas now. Next, they're coming for your water....

A solution will not come from within the broken system.
Who, of you, is ready to live outside it and leave those who cling to it behind ? Or perhaps imprison THEM for their greed, abuse of power, and self serving definitions of freedom ?!

No way ! That's the best.

They're called snowbirds. They escaped from the asylum. And exploit tax shelters while b*tching about taxes, exhausting more social security than they ever paid in, and complain about how it's gone to hell back home. Of course it's the same there. Same old people who had it good, retired(what's that?), blaming it on the ones left.
It's dirt cheap to live here. MCP is pretty sweet. And it's "home" or where I'm from when I save enough money to leave again. Best I can say. Never promised anyone political correctness or a candy coating or bogus fake "positivity". But I have love in my heart. And skills. And there most definitely are greener pastures.

Youngstown is best in this category^^^ Drowning its' sorrows. But there's no answer at the bottom of your glass.
Too small a crumb "trickles down" from Republican small businesses. That's why you all bellyache about only being able to hire criminals and drug addicts.
Things get a little tougher for the have nots and they're going to get a lot tougher for the haves. We know how to live on little. You have so much further to fall.
And you need the work done more than we need the work. I may live poorly but I will never work for you to do so. You entitled types can't afford me.
By entitled, I am referring to your nepotism, and your tax breaks. Your brokering of human suffering, and honoring only profit margin. Your racism and ignorance only reflects your fears. Your paranoia is well justified. It's called karma. And you can only hide in Canfield and Poland for so long.
Living in this town is like swimming upstream in a toilet. You learn to dodge the turds. You learn to keep a few extra irons in the fire because you cannot trust your employer to to keep his/her greed from embezzling, or leaving town when the abatement expires, or whatever other shenanigans screw dedicated employees out of careers, savings and pensions, etc.
Frack the park and b*tch about crime-nothing left for you to steal from this town.

I blame the baby boomer party.
Best wages, healthcare, land prices, employment, environment.
And look what they have left us. Pollution, unemployment, no hope, fingerpointing, greed, hoarding.
They took what the "Best" generation left for them, and used it all up.
Frack you all !

The people left here are the ones who MADE it in their day.
They have seen change ravage their lifestyles. But they have maintained. And HOARDED.
And now they depend on those of us left to work for them for peanuts, as we will never know the lifestyles they take for granted.
That's why I'm saving up to leave. The ones remaining here are MORE ENTITLED THAN TODAY'S YOUTH. Let them rot with no one to hear them complain...

While this initiative has responded to early criticisms of being too monopolistic by allowing individuals to grow up to four plants at once, it still maintains a strict grasp upon the retail market.
This is not the way to legalize. Free market competition is great for quality and tax revenue. The Colorado model is successful. Why vary from it and limit the potential successes to those finally "bold" enough to throw their money behind it when they smell money ? There is no reason for those who have the money to benefit alone from legalization.
We don't need another monopoly. Nobody owns a plant(until Monsanto gets involved).

Things get so much better when old fearful types die.
