Barely scraping by with a $250,000 salary in Silicon Valley
Lucas Roitman

LOL when I took my first job out of college in Silicon Valley 37 years ago, it already took two engineering salaries to support a dumpy suburban tract house…and that was at housing prices 1/8th of today’s. Should have held my old townhouse as an investment when I moved to an outlying site.

The satire might have been more obvious had it cited trying to live in a single family house in London, Tokyo, Paris, New York (Manhattan), in San Francisco, or the like.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
