United Van Lines reports that their annual study shows New Jersey as the most moved-from state in the nation.
This is the 5th year in a row that NJ has held this dishonor. Given the state’s crushing taxes and hostility toward business and commerce, it’s hard to imagine this trend reversing any time soon. Maybe it would help to be known for better things than Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, a fat crooked governor and some idiots in a shore house a decade ago.
The most moved-to state is South Dakota.
United said 63 percent of moves were those out of New Jersey.
New Jersey was followed by Illinois, and then New York.
