My wife and I were happy to make our escape from The Peoples Republic of California 7 years ago. The only thing we miss is the weather.
we have a word for people who make $40k/year here in massachusetts
In today's economy? You betcha!
This does not take cost of living into consideration so it sort of takes away "10 best and worst" to make a living.
Here in the NYC area, making 50K is with a family of 3 makes you somewhat poor. The same 50K in Vermont would allow you more money for extras.
Which brings me to that 250K thing...
If I make 250K here in NY...I am rich in the eyes of the left, but living, at best, a middle class lifestyle.
If I make 249K in Nebraska, I am middle class in the eys of the left, but living a rich persons lifestyle.
Why is it that Obama and his "ideas" doent take that into consideration?
Notice how the best places are to live? More income.
They have less taxes.
it was poor five years ago. taxes and cost of living here are brutal
Ill is one of the oddest places I have lived. $42k/yr "Down state" and you are liven large. Cuz it's all small farm towns with some large towns and a couple of small cities.
$42k in Chicago? your fucked. You better be single and not choosy when it comes to roomates.
Plus the state employees union has pay set that so that you can do well of you work in Chicago. Since most don't....
Minnesota has less taxes.
