Heads up, if you're looking to relocate somewhere a little more scenic, and a little less populated: Vermont is paying people $10,000 to relocate to the state - so long as they work remotely for an out-of-state employer.

"We need more people in the state and people participating in the workforce", said Joan Goldstein, the commissioner of Vermont's Department for Economic Development. She said her office is already getting inquiries from interested workers. But they better hurry.
