“There are jobs in Vancouver, but not what they use to be. I use to make 60K a year, but most jobs require a lot more for 45K a year now. Jobs are just lower pay in general.”

“There are jobs in Vancouver but not what they use to be. I use to make 60K a year, but most jobs require a lot more for 45K a year now. This is what it seems like to me. Jobs are just lower pay in general.”

  1. That is about right. We are looking at about a 15-25% deflation in wages.

    Wonder if anything else will go down as well?

  2. And people still want to live here? Says a lot about BC…and why we are the best place on earth to live.

  3. Not for long if prices stay high. The good jobs are leaving.

    How does “Used to be the best place but screwed it up” sound?

  4. Prices have stayed high since 2002..that is more than 8 years..but yet, people consistently still live here. hmm…
