Here's one of them (from Lady Bouvier's Lover, Season 5, Episode 21): And here's another appearance, from Three Men and a Comic Book (Season 2, Episode 21): The fact that it is rarely seen was parodied in White Christmas Blues ...
Undetermined. The mystery is an intentional running gag and their true state of residence is never revealed. Instances when it does seem to be revealed or at least approximated are usually illogical, altered later or contradicted with some other information. From Wikipedia: Because of the many contradictory statements regarding Springfield, it is ...
Talking to TMZ, Matt Groening said: He was always yellow, and they painted him wrong once. 'At the time we didn't have enough to do retakes, so when there were glitches and mistakes it stayed that way. 'He was never 'black', it was an accident.

Aside from the obvious answer: It's a cartoon--we can make some assumptions with real-world data. The average Nuclear Power Plant Operator's salary is 72.5k a year. The average house price in Springfield, oh...let's say Missouri is 107k. Let's say that this is a really nice house for the area and they paid $150k. Let's figure they got in on an OK interest ...

The Simpson's is an "episodic" series not a a "serial", like many situation comedies. Very often in an episodic series events in one episode often have no or little impact on future episodes. You could ask why homes that were blown up in one episode are back in the next for instance.
While the Simpsons absolutely exist "in the now" they never age within their own universe. So I think it's fair to say that in addition to perpetual state of age, that it'd make sense to have perpetual state of employment by default. There's also the practical issue of these voice actors already having a whole lot on their plate. That they have this many ...
