Since the pandemic started over 4 years ago, many people had to adapt to a new work environment. The lockdown and quarantine forced many employed people to quickly learn how to properly work from home. It wasn't easy, but fast forward 4 years later and a lot of people are still working from home. It has gotten to the point now, that some people would even move further away from their office if they were allowed to continue to work from home.

With the influx of out-of-staters flocking to Montana over the last 4 years. It is safe to say that some of those folks are possibly still employed with their job in another state, and just working remotely. But, according to WalletHub, Montana is not a choice spot for folks who prefer working remotely. But why?

According to WalletHub, they compared all 50 states using two key features. They judged each state according to "Work Environment" and "Living Environment." They dug up the data on 12 ket metrics.

  • Average electricity cost
  • Access to low priced internet
  • Internet cost
  • Median square footage of houses compared to people in household
  • Cybersecurity
  • plus many more

When it comes to Montana, we rank in the bottom 5 states for remote work.

Our Work Environment was what got us the most. Montana seems to be lacking in the internet and cyber security departments. Not to mention the average square footage of homes being particularly small compared to elsewhere.

In the end, Montana ranks #49 in the nation, with Alaska claiming the bottom spot and Arkansas at #3.
