Over the past few years, Burlington has seen an increase in remote workers, especially from the IT industry. Many of these new Vermonters are moving from larger tech hub spots such as Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles where the cost of housing has risen significantly. Recent reporting by NPR shows that Burlington VT is one of the top 5 cities in the country when it comes to an increase in migration to smaller cities from major metro areas during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Migration to Burlington from large cities was up 103% in the Spring of 2020 compared to that of 2019. This is in large part thanks to the increasing ability of IT workers ability to work remotely. The number of remote information technology job postings is up 58% compared to the same period last year.
