Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I am a statistic. I left Nova Scotia in December 2013 for Alberta. I tried operating my own business in NS with little success thanks to over saturation of an unregulated market (photography). I also worked in a commercial studio doing highly technical lighting setups, food styling, product, food, corporate, and artifact photography and was offered $13.00/hr with little hope of reaching $14/hr anytime soon. If I wanted to make $13/hr I would get a job at McDonald's. After putting out resumes for two weeks in Calgary, I landed a job making $300/day plus per diems, and with my own vehicle, $1.10/km mileage. In a month I generally drive almost 6000 km for work. I received on the job training for my work. Why would I stay in Nova Scotia and use my hard earned education to struggle my way through life on a daily basis?? Besides that, companies are shutting down and cutting jobs left right and centre. .. I.e. Michelin cutting 500 good paying jobs in Pictou County. I love Nova Scotia. I love that I am from Nova Scotia. But there is a good chance I will always be from Nova Scotia rather than in Nova Scotia.
