#Mark on Dec 12, 2017 :
Yeah, with regards to the reported net salary, it is fairly high compared with anyone I know. I make around 1200 after tax, and that is working full time at minimum wage, it is the same if not less, and it will only get worse after brexit.

Also, the Plaza in Waterloo is an independent business, and is certainly the exception when it comes to cinema prices. For comparisons sake it surely makes more sense to go by cinema chain prices.
#Evelyn on Sep 24, 2017 :
I want to live in Liverpool, it looks so beautiful and full of culture to me. Definitely it's my city. I love it.
I was wondering if finding jobs are easy for foreign people. If someone can answer that it would be nice!
#llg77 on May 04, 2017 :
Liverpool City is a lot better now since they've won European Capital of Culture. Many new modern apartments in the city and by the docks, new museums, a great Liverpool 1 to hang out with your friends and family! That's my personal thought about Liverpool!
#Brownie on Jan 04, 2017 :
Moved to liverpool from London for work in 2008. Contract was for 2yrs, ending up staying till 2013 then moved down south, Liverpool made me more wealth than I ever could of imagined. I love the city. Look around there so much opportunity.
#Peter Robinson on Jul 20, 2016 :
Was born in UK; thinking I will retire in UK.
#Jon Osborne on Oct 05, 2015 :
At the Plaza in Waterloo it is £2.90 to watch a film on current release, so this is a bit misleading
#andrew on Jul 06, 2015 :
The ONS average wage in Liverpool (not the city region, which I think would be a higher) was about £27,800 in April 2014. It is higher than for example Manchester.
#Ifigenia Rangel on Apr 20, 2015 :
Im considering to live in Liverpool, since Im recently a citizen from Italy and my first nacionality is Venezuelan, but due to the problems we are having in Venezuela i want to go.

Could it be extremelly hard for me to make a new life there?
#Jack on Feb 03, 2015 :
The average wage is either massively increased from outliers in a small dataset or I am being massively underpaid, most everyone I know gets at or marginally above minimum wage and pulls no more than £1200 after tax. I have a stable full time job and pull just on 1000
#Michael on Jan 29, 2015 :
I live in Liverpool and whilst your figures on the whole are correct, the disposable income is well off. 2k after tax is around 30k a year which is well above the national average and wages in Liverpool would certainly be below that figure.
#Aly Cissokho on Jul 13, 2014 :
Average salary is higher than mine (graduate 2014), equal on pre tax value.
Definitely not an economically-depressed areas.

Also moved from London.
#CharmedBoy on Mar 22, 2014 :
You could say the same thing about most northern cities over 10 years ago.
#Anonymous on Mar 20, 2014 :
#CharmedBoy
I haven't been there for at least a decade but from what I remember it was pretty bad and depressed compared to the South East (where I come from)
#CharmedBoy on Mar 20, 2014 :
Liverpool is not economically depressed. It has seen one of the highest growths in every area like its economy since the 90s. Get with the times.
#Anonymous on Feb 24, 2014 :
quite frankly, the average salary looks a tad too high to me.. i'm not from Liverpool but i'm English and we all know Liverpoool is one of the most economically-depressed areas in the UK

the rest seems quite accurate, though - with this kind of money you could live like a king
