that is totally True. Everyone wants to earn higher income, but please guys (who are from canada), do not focus on BAY AREA, there are multiple opportunities in RALEIGH, FLORIDA, TEXAS where you can easily earn around 120K and having less taxes believe me. (E.g. A Chioptle cost 6.75$ USD while here it costs 11$, same with footlong subway). Going to Bay area seems not that much right, but do explore opportunities in other part of USA, like BUFFALO, AUSTIN (VISA pays very very good amount better then SFO in some terms). So do look for more income, don’t be depressed by TORONTO , WATERLOO, KITCHENER salaries.
