The honest opinion does not have to be judgemental. The actual facts are jobs are scarce here in Cincinnati. There are thousands of people out of work. Many people are having difficulty with both members of the family working at fast food jobs which combined are less than a single manufacturing job of years past.

Some towns like Hamilton Ohio have a large percentage of people from Appalachia who came to this area years ago and found decent jobs in the factories which existed then. But those factory jobs are gone and those people are scraping for what jobs are available. I am not sure anyone meant to belittle you but simply to state that times are definiely tough here and there many more people contending for the available jobs.

Someone with forklift experience may find a job in one of the many distribution terminals located in this area. But my advice is secure the job before making the move.

I read your other post and Motorman's response. I can't disagree with him. He offered a good dose of reality. With that said, you can make it here if your skill set and tenacity is right.

Have you checked Cincinnati's Craiglist jobs section?

Do you have a competitive resume? Your husband?

Do you have savings for moving and living expenses?

Do you plan to have a job lined up before moving?

How will you move? Husband first who secures work and housing?

Just some thoughts.

There are jobs in Cincinnati, and likely more than in Charleston. Overall, compared to other metros, Cincinnati is doing alright. I am a carpenter who runs two non-carpentry related businesses. Even for me, who seldom needs to seek employment, when I looked for work I found it.

I really don't believe you read to random posts on CD forums that stated "no jobs" and then decided not to move here. That's laughable. Did you check Craigslist? What about other classifieds?

Mr jones i find it laughable at what people are saying in their post to me and i could be wrong they act like im gonna pick up and just move without looking for work and I think its because of my large family but i am a hard worker and have always worked and yes i have looked at craigs list the enquier and career builders and i have seen jobs on those sites but i didnt know how the cost of living and if you can make it is all I was asking. I wasnt asking for a handout or anything just whether it would be worth it to move or stay in wv that is all and what i read in the previous post where i was told to not burden cincinatti and that jobs were scarce I just thought id look at other places also that were afforable to live maybe ive come to the wrong site i dont know i kind of feel attacked for what i post on here maybe i should cancel my account and look at other cities because cincy is not looking very friendly so far to me and maybe im taking peoples post a little bit to heart but just to let you and anyone else know i do have a plan to save money and secure a job before I just picked up my family and move to a new state just because I dont have a degree doesnt mean I dont have a brain I did take some college courses Thanks for you guys input and have a nice day I may still consider cincinatti but im gonna put some other states and cities on my list for now

There are quite a number of warehouses in Hamilton, Fairfield, and environs. There are also quite a number of medical places as well. Fairfield is a place with some affordable houses and a pretty good school district. If there is not a specific reason to move to Cincinnati, the Dayton/Columbus/Cincinnati area has one of the highest concentrations of warehouses in the country and quite a few places with good school districts with moderate housing prices.
