Real salaries for newcomers 2000-2200 after tax, forget about 4k+! So expensive to live and survive here in RTP area - rent 1800-2000 with utilities, taxes high enough, people ignorant to you, and just pretend to be friendly and good only in blah blah blah or zero promises... I looked 6+ month for job in digital marketing with minimal range 35$ per hour and spent all capital for such experimental move from Sacramento to "best place to live", in fact real job market in between 20-35$ per hour for white collar and 7.25-19$ for others - in reality no money in Raleigh, lots of shops and biz closes, next month my family will move to Arizona where I found job. Here in Raleigh everybody works and afraid to be fired, dumb lifestyle of little goats. Immigrants from Europe / and local students works for 8$/per hour without "American exp", and mostly all 7 days in week to pay for bills!!! People look for better job for more than two year in average, otherwise some their colleagues "white natives" got 75-120$ per hour for nothing to do(drinks coffee from 10-12, and leaves office at 3-4pm). I tried local grubhub/postmates/doordash delivery to pay bills(avg before tax 180-200$ week/ 120-150 miles), but nobody gave any penny tips for delivery(why?), how this gig economy lives, impossible to earn - like some type of volunteering job. People no have cash and social protection. Never come here without any job or with babies, all services so costly and people mostly don't like newcomers!

Raleigh (and NC in general) has become more blue so more taxes with deteriorating living environment.
#James Dubreck on Jul 17, 2017 :
Your cool excludes taxes imposed on Raleigh residents.
For example: automobile property tax averages $600 per year
Automobile inspection+registration averages $70 per year.
Personal property taxes on pets, tools, recreational items, jewelry, etc. Average 350.00 per year.
Gas tax is .56/gal state
Sales tax is on EVERYTHING, FOOD, CLOTHES, NECESSITIES,etc.
