So people, especially young people keep leaving New York. Especially Upstate...

For more than 15 years, New York state has led the country in domestic outmigration: For every American who comes here, roughly two depart for other states. This outmigration slowed briefly following the onset of the Great Recession. But a recent Marist poll suggests that the rate is likely to increase: 36 percent of New Yorkers under 30 plan to leave over the next five years. Why are all these people fleeing?

Count me as one. I could not find a job in my feild in New York. And thus I moved to a state where there was employment, and lower taxes and cost of living and was Shall-Issue.

It happens.

More and more.
