Working in Iuka
Iuka is a quite a small town where nothing really happens. Everyone knows just about everyone. If you shop in the local grocery store, you are bound to run into old pals. Most of everyone is super friendly and they will go to extreme measures to make you feel at home. The citizens of Iuka love church, family, and sweet tea!
I have lived here for years. Years ago this was the best place and now it seems drugs and poverty are growing a lot. As far as jobs, its not what you know, but who you know or who your family is. In town Iuka has some trashy rentals that really hurt the area because of some of what it is bringing in. Plenty of slum lords around. Town has no shortage of wild youth that like to do bad and get a slap on the wrist. Be wary of who you do business with because no matter how shady of a deal you get, everyone around here covers for each other. If you move here, I would suggest living out in the county. People that really like this place probably have family here. Can't wait to move away.
Love the small town environment! The people in the community have pulled together during the covid pandemic.
