Cost of living has risen as wages have remained stagnant.... another bubble will pop eventually
#Tiffany on Oct 13, 2015 :
I would really like to understand how this helps at all? I want to move out there from where I'm at but the expenses pile up more and more as I add them up. I'll be in debt before I even get a chance to raise my babies
#Erin S on Jun 26, 2015 :
Where are they finding apartments for around $1,000 in the "city center?" I'd sure like to know.
