I want to know how towns like Billerica, Bedford, Burlington, Lexington, and Lowell are doing right now in this recession. If I had to guess, I would say their surviving better than other US locations are but wanna make sure. I am in FL but am considering a move back to that region of MA.
Florida is one of the worst places to be in this recession, but whats the report up that way?

Depends on what kind of work. A machine place in Billerica just laid off 300 workers, a nd put ads on TV and newspaper to recommend its employees to other employers!
I gather things here are no way as bad as in Florida. For instance, the foreclosures are way lower, and the economy is far less dependent (if at all) on tourism.
You would, however, likely need a car.
Best wishes.
