So the minimum wage surely must be about $25 an hour right? :rolleyes:

That is just plain outrageous. I feel for those who live in California. Everybody needs a place to live, and the Dream is to own you own home; but jeez. Half a million for a dinky house before interest is tacked on. How many jobs must one work just to cover the house payment? The housing market needs to get back to reality! :frown3:

I had a chance to transfer to San Jose. Really wanted to go but hubby would have had to give up 26 years seniority to quit and go with me. Bummer. Sounds like it's just as well I couldn't afford to rent a tent there.
