...if you wanna live in "The Mississippi of The Pacific North West."
Seriously, I'm from this state, I love
it in Boise, but the state politics really make me wonder about the long term future of a state whose legislature is more concerned with attracting more minimum wage jobs than they are about investing in education or infrastructure. There's been a series of reports in NPR about how Idaho is now the state with the highest percentage of minimum wage workers
, in the country. AND only behind 18 other states in raw numbers.
You think you get frustrated about the GP locals, wait till you experience Idaho...
Now, Boise itself is a pocket of Le Resistance and is pretty progressive, relatively, but there's not a big enough population here yet to really sway the state politics. However, I'll say it again..I do love it here. The weather, the access, the remoteness and even most of the people here...some of the time
