I think if I were younger in a low pay job I'd save up a bit and just move. There is some risk involved, but if you are motivated chances are you'll do just fine. If your not the motivated type... eee might be a bit harder. We have a number of unmotivated types here and they manage to get by going six months or more without employment. That just boggles my mind... but the point is people do get lower paid jobs easily enough that I wouldn't worry about moving in and then not being able to get something (again- provided your motivated- and actually start submitting resumes, calling about jobs, following up with resume submissions, etc).
When I say "low" pay I mean $9-12 / hr which is enough to live off if you are single and in the Keene, New Hampshire area. New Hampshire has jobs that pay $75,000+ / year too, but that often is going to go a really long way here. Like, two cars, a house, kids, a non-working partner kinda far. When I moved from New Jersey to New Hampshire I got nearly twice the house I could afford in New Jersey. I downgraded slightly from a 4 bedroom two car garage to a three bedroom two car garage. The house I have currently here would probably fetch close to twice as much in New Jersey... the only downside to Keene is the high property taxes. I pay less here none-the-less, but it's more than I was, but that's mostly due to the fact I only actually owned half the house (thus I paid half the property tax bill) that I owned back in NJ (which was also worth twice as much).
