My area has gone from LCOL to MCOL. This isn’t just with house prices going up 300% within a year. All the food is double what it was even one year ago. It’s a very poor area with the last survey the mayor did the average household income was 35k a year.
Wages have not gone up, but everything else has. I’m curious as to how some people make it? The locals that are here still making $12 an hr, not the Californians that came in and bought houses at 100k over asking.
