median wage in the US is $26k, I sincerely doubt the average in urban areas is 4x higher.

In SF, it's above average, but not abhorrently so. I'd say 78-82k is average for an actual carrer job

8$/ hr is still more in my backwater than 15$/ hr is in San Francisco.

There is nothing progressive about it.

It might be average in particular neighborhoods or subsets of US metropolitan cities but it isn't the average of any US city today.

@Techpill
I... What?

Do you not know that most metro centers work like this?

How do you not understand that if somewhere is like 10 blocks solid of offices the people have to live elsewhere.

What is a suburb

Also, SanFran literally has some of the shittiest driving conditions because of the MILLIONS of people driving every day.

Where the fuck do you think they're driving from?

The "living wage" in San Francisco, CA is $13.96 for one adult. The "living wage" in Hall County, TX is about $9. So if you're earning $8 in Hall County with promotion potential I'd say you're doing much better than a worker in SanFran whose wages are capped. It's much easier for an employer to rise from $8 to $10 than $15 to $17.

Employers in San Francisco actually care about their employees. It's not about how much you can buy with your money, it's about how much your employer values you. If you are paid $8 an hour then your employer is ultimately a cheap piece of shit.

No idea.

I moved to a small town because commute is better and small business owners are way better to work for than companies.

Was working for a multi-billion dollar industry, couldn't get a raise, couldn't progress, got shit hours. Working for a guy who only owns two restaurants, two raises in a year, cash in hand every week on top of wages, and he's paying for all my upgrading so I'm worth more every year. It's the fucking shit.

And I can sleep at night without hearing sirens.
