Just wondering...

What state are you from? Is the cost of living there high? Is there jobs in your area?

  • I'm in VA. The jobs.... not so much, unless you're looking to be a coal miner, work at a gas station, Wal Mart or fast food. The coal mining jobs are for the lucky few who know people and know where to go and when. The cost of living is pretty low, I think. Apartments and trailers usually cost between $150 (if it's a trailer and you're paying other things separate from rent, like a lot rent and utilities) and $500. Utilities for me are between $100-190 a month. It's not too bad. It's hard living off of minimum wage, though, which is what most people do. I think that's one reason why PA bashing bugs me so bad, because so many people around here, even with two people working, NEED PA of some kind just to survive with no luxuries at all.

  • OH, cost of living isn't that bad, not a job to be found except part time fast food work. Welcome to the Rust Belt.

  • We live in the county of Los Angeles in soCal. The cost of living is sky high here. I was laid off from my job at the end of 2008. Thank goodness my husband has kept his job so we are just making it work with his salary. We did move though from a really expensive area to a different city about an hour north. He has to commute but the house prices are a lot lower so it's worth it.

  • We live in Ohio. Cost of living is average, depending on what part you move to. Cleveland is pretty inexpensive however, the suburbs of Cleveland can be pricey.
    As far as jobs go..not so good right now. Not at all.
