CRAIG JENNINGS on Feb 16, 2019:
is there a way to compare all the various "costs of" against multiple locations and have it listed out?
Jason on Nov 27, 2017:
im thinking about moving away from colorado springs to greenville south carolina.
after seeing this im now on the fence.
for a 2 bedroom in colorado is abot 1,000 - $1,300 with a min of $9.70 per hour.
sounds like greenville will cost $1,000 with a min wage of $7.25.
will it be worth it?
mind you i am a red lobster server grossing 30k already and fiance makes 12 per hour.
moving to greenville would it financially be better or worse?
