Hi Thank you for this. looks like the living cost is similar to where we currently live in the UK, but the disposable income is comparatively good. If one is interested in living and working in the USA (Texas) do you have any idea and suggestions of this is possible? Following our recent visit, we have just fallen in love with the USA...more details are appreciated..
