    The USA has always had a mobile population. From what I have seen, the main reasons people leave "the Great Northeast" are:

    1) Retirees moving someplace warmer and/or cheaper. Florida (aka "God's Waiting Room") for example.

    2) Trained working people following the good jobs. Often what happens is that a young person will go to college outside the region and find a job near where they went to school - and that's where they stay. (There are so many great colleges and universities here, producing so many well-educated people, that they are a major export.)

    3) Married people following spouses for the above reasons.

    Note that Connecticut's population has steadily increased since they began keeping records. Must be a reason people stay. And the main reason the cost of living is high is because real estate costs so much....because so many people want to live there.....

    @ND6M....I've been to TN....have you ever been to PA? CT? Anyplace in the Great Northeast?

    NH has become polluted by all those from MA, CT, NY etc drawn by steady job availability from Hi Tech to working at an auto dealership prepping trade ins.

    Unfortunately many bring problems that destroy the tradition.

    CT is primarily a bedroom state for NY which makes it unaffordable for many of the "natives" so they move here and raise our property taxes.

    Amen brother!

    They move to NH for a better lifestyle for themselves and their children, but bring along their urbanite attitudes along with the same liberal politics that failed them in their home state.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
    Can you provide any data as to who is paid what, at ARRL.
    I have been (lazily) trying to get that information.
    You state with a sense of someone who knows, that the staff is paid less than at for-profits. I don’t really care about that comparison. Someone working for a non-profit should be paid less. I would hope they are working there, at least in part, because they share the mission. But I can’t find out salaries. They won’t even give the amounts paid to outside counsel. (Which, I am guessing, is quite a bit).
    Can you also explain what 100 employees do there, as I cannot find that in anything public.
    I have not gotten that information.
    Facts, please.
    If you have any.

    So those who work at for-profits should get more because they don't, in part, share the mission? o_O

    You're welcome, David.

    No. I don't know what anyone at Hq makes, I don't care who makes what, and besides, quite honestly, it's none of my business. And I wonder why it's any of your's.

    I knew - past tense - as in a former life, I was employed at Hq, or Hindquarters as some staffers used to call it.

    As for the pay comparison, that was simply to set the stage for a hypothetical situation where an employee would be asked to relocate half way across the North American continent. I believe it's safe to assume that the more money one makes, the greater the likelihood they'd consider relocating. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear in the original post.

    Wow. Just. Wow.

    Who is "they"?

    Have you contacted your Division Director?

    Do you know any inexpensive lawyers who practice corporate law or communications law?

    I could, but I'm not going to.

    If you look in QST magazine, you can find quite a bit of information about various Hq departments, magazine related staffing, and other staff hierarchy.

    Kent Cliffs looks like it's only a 2 hour or so drive to Newington. Why not do a day trip, take a tour of the Hq building and W1AW? While you're there you can go through your list of questions face to face with those "in the (2018) know"?

    After Hq, hit Hartford - 15 minutes away - and tour the Mark Twain House. It's fascinating!

    Have you contacted your Division Director?

    You do realize that there are many CT, NY, and MA past and current residents who are Libertarian or Conservative, don't you?
