Don't say this too loud. A portion of society will want to tax them at 90% to be fair.

My daughter is a tech genius. Her base income is way over $200,000.00 per year with big bonus. She told be that after taxes she only takes home about $10,000.00 per month. She lives in a very modest home in a metropolitan area. her housing and transportation expense is $5,000.00 per month. She has almost an hour commute. When she lived in San Francisco her apartment rent was $4,000.00 for an 800 square foot unit. While people are making a lot of money, the cost of earning that money is tremendous.

White households have the highest median income at $105,000, followed by Asian at $95,800, and so on. Black households remain at the bottom of the list with a median income of $42,500.

....... local living expenses registering far higher than the national average. A few years ago, it was estimated that it takes roughly $73,000 to be able to live in Seattle.

Gee...living costs in Seattle are racist?

I have a nephew majoring in Mathematics, he did an internship at Amazon in Seattle last summer, at about 10K per month with pay, housing and travel allowances. Not even an employee...an internship. The struggle is real.

I'm pretty sure the people in the pup tents on the side of I-5 aren't making a ton of bucks-I could be wrong.

I’m in a similar situation, but it’s not honest to imply it’s all taxes, it’s Tax, $1600 in 401(k), 500 in Roth IRA, 200 in FSA, $500 in health ins, dental, life.

Being able to telecommute ( or travel) from a rural area is priceless. I just had to work my ass off to make it possible.

BTW, I’m doing a part time gig consulting for the USG in a few
months. The contract had to be awarded to a “economically disadvantaged woman owned small business”. To be a EDWOSB, you have to have a average income under $350,000. Puts a. middle class income in perspective ( BTW, her Husband, Kids, and Sister are employees as well, and her husband is 49% owner and “director of operations.” So I’m guessing the owning family can make a mil a year and still be economically disadvantaged.

I've read that to live a Norman Rockwell middle-class life in San Francisco requires a gross income of $350,000 per year.

They don't have a "homeless" problem, they have a junkie problem.
De-criminalizing drug use and minor crimes brings the dirtbag junkies in force.
None of them care about getting "housing." They're junkies. They just want somewhere that they're not getting hassled.
Like San Fran, LA, and a bunch of other libtard led cities, they have encouraged the behavior which will be their end. So be it.

Have no pity for them. The people that live there continue to vote for the politicians that pass this crap. They've dug their own grave.

Hopefully the death of the city will be quick (probably not), and those that are left will figure out that a different way forward is needed.

But it increases the GDP/capita statistics quite nicely so at least you can "feel" rich.
