It never ceases to amaze me. All these people want to live in the big, cool city...just like several million other people...and then bitch about everything being so expensive. It's a big country. Plenty of places with a low cost of living where you can still make good money. All their woes are entirely self-made.
Yeah, but those places aren't cool. Plus, you might have to live around *gasp* Trump supporters...
That's another thing. So many corporations are in big cities that have absolutely no need to be there. They could be doing themselves and their employees a massive favor by relocating to cheaper places.
Except that the high-end employees you need for that kind of work have expectations of a fun lifestyle that can't be had in Lincoln, Nebraska.
I know a pretty good developer who lived in Honolulu. While he liked the surf and sea, he got bored after a couple of years and got a new job in L.A. He's much happier there, being able to take road trips to Mexico and Tahoe, go to Lakers games, experience L.A. nightlife, etc. etc. Been there a decade now.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
