$10,000 to Move to Vermont

Now this is kind of clever: in order to offset its relatively small and aging workforce, Vermont is giving out-of-state workers incentive to work remotely from Vermont. The state isn't asking folks to give up their jobs, just asking them to work from home in Vermont doing it.

The incentive? $10,000 in expense reimbursement over two years.

For a "brand" known for dairy, skiing, fall foliage, and a serene way of life, this is pretty clever and creative, if you ask me. Nice way to avoid the craziness of a big city yet still keep a lucrative job.

Giving a whole new meaning to "working remotely!"
