Why Is Pennsylvania Losing Its Millennials?
Their education is taking them places. Some U.S. college grads are migrating to states where they can best cope with crushing student loan payments. That’s prompted a mass exodus from states like Pennsylvania, home of the nation’s second-highest level of student debt. It lost 13,000 millennials in 2014 alone to places like Kansas, which repays $3,000 in higher education debt for each year the borrower puts down roots in designated rural counties — a practical option now that web-based economies let employees work from the middle of nowhere.
