Just One Catch

It turns out that sheetrockers aren’t the only ones who can make good money these days in North Dakota.  See, “North Dakota Boom, Twin Cities Ripples?”

Someone who came through one of my open houses yesterday with North Dakota ties said that the local McDonald’s are paying $16(!) an hour.

The catch?

Housing, food, and basically everything else in North Dakota is expensive now, too.

Not so great if you’re retired on a fixed income, or not from there and need a place to stay.

Pretty cool if you’re a North Dakota teenager living at home!
