Vermont will pay you $7,500 to move there and work
Restaurant worker shortage is ‘biggest labor crisis’ we’ve seen: Business owner
Allendale Bar and Grill owner Chris Kunisch shares his frustration about the worker shortage and new COVID restrictions.
As worker shortages drag on across the U.S., Vermont is trying to fill its employers' open positions by offering up to $7,500 to folks willing to take a job and move to the state.
In order to take advantage of the reimbursement program dubbed the "New Relocating Worker Grant," out-of-staters must first move to Vermont and land a gig from a Vermont employer for a position on the state's list of 50 occupations that are currently in the highest demand. Jobs on the list range from cashiers – which top the list as most needed – to accountants, teachers and fitness trainers. The new employer must also attest that they were unable to fill the position from Vermont applicants, and pay for the new job must also be at or above Vermont's "livable wage rate" of $13.39 per hour.
