30 hours a week isn't working your ass off. I work that in two days buddy. Maybe your paycheck wouldn't be so shitty if you worked some overtime. Moron.
#Anonymous on Aug 07, 2017 :
One of the pros of Pittsburgh cost of living is the Aldi grocery chain. The cost of groceries there is beyond reasonable and cuts down on monthly food costs significantly.
#Anonymous on Jul 17, 2017 :
Pittsburgh isn't a bad city and has some cool things. but as far as a livable city.,well not so in my book and Pennsylvania use to be a good state to live in but since that ugly chrome dome 4 eyed ass that calls himself a governor moved in as well as the over staff of politicians well Pa is now the asshole state of all 50 states. gas tax to fix roads or to pad more pockets.. beautiful country but the morons running it are chasing everyone out.wake up you greedy stupid corrupt asses in Harrisburg.....

Proof Pittsburgh is getting more expensive: The housing allowance I get from the GI Bill living in Bloomfield is increasing by about 15% from 2015 to 2016.

I pay about $2,000 per month (including parking) in Denver for a fairly nice (but not luxury) one-bedroom near downtown. Rent here is very high.
