Libertards are the very first ones to kick and scream anytime things don't go their way.Libertards have no plan of direction throughout life living without a spine.

However inbred gangsters as you call them use the direct approach.
Bang bang no more wasted airtime without solutions or useless noise pollution.Trumplicons know how to get the job done right the first time bang bang.

Numbeo Website and viewing Community

Im a big fan of website.

Dont just comment, promote more interest in the analytics and understanding of Cost of Living vs.Advertised wages.

This needs to be in the hands of every person seeking work and all working persons.

Who would ever want to live in Austin with a bunch of brainless libertards?

If you have an average personal income of 4500, as it has been reported by users here, you're rich, period

Yes you can live on $50k but be careful.

I make about 50k a year, and I live comfortably in Austin. My rent in a nice, 1-bedroom apartment in a gated community in north Austin (city limits) is 984 per month, plus utilities, which are under 150. I have student loans and a car/insurance payment, and I'm fine. I don't drive a Maserati, I'm not eating dinner at 5 star restaurants every night, but I'm not struggling and don't get all the griping. Unless you're living ridiculously far above your means or make a low salary (and if that's the case, you'll have problems no matter where you are), Austin isn't that expensive.
