In recent years, Montana has welcomed thousands of new residents in search of a simpler way of life. While some may find that, many of the state's new residents are faced with the not-so-pleasant reality, and that is, that living in Montana isn't for the faint of heart. Montana is known for long harsh winters with subzero temperatures, but that's not the only downside of living in Montana. Wages in the state are far below the national average, and Montana continues to lose educated workers to other states.

The cost of living in some places in Montana is through the roof, and in places like Bozeman, the median price for a single-family home is more than $900,000. Many people have moved to Montana for job opportunities, but quickly learn that finding a place to live is nearly impossible. A lot of businesses are short-staffed, and the wait time for something as simple as getting a tire changed can take well over a month.

That's right, if you thought living in Montana was the equivalent of Easy Street, think again. The number of homeless camps and urban campers lining the streets in cities like Bozeman and Missoula is higher than ever, and nothing is happening to fix the issue.
