Dayton Township Reviews

The employment in this area is fairly good. Most of the time there are job opportunities, but sometimes there are very few. If someone moved here and didn't have a degree, they would most likely be able to find a job and be able to pay bills.

There are a lot of local businesses in the area that are still thriving even though there are big department stores and super centers.
There are quite a few places you can get food from around here, including fast food places, family owned restaurants, and other things. Most of the food here is great, I don't think i've ever gone anywhere in town that i haven't liked so far.
