There are an abundance of jobs and not enough people to fill them in the city of Hamilton, Ohio, roughly 45 minutes outside of Cincinnati.
Before you pack your bags you should know there is a catch or two.
The Wall Street Journal reports how Hamilton, a city of 62,000, has approximately 5,800 jobs just waiting to be filled. The Journal notes a growing trend in smaller cities around the US where people between the ages of 25-54 left for bigger cities, and now those who are left are starting to retire.
A foundation in Hamilton will pay $5,000 to 11 people who relocate there if they have a background in engineering, science, tech, or the arts. They must also agree to stay in Hamilton for at least two years, and agree to live in the downtown area.
