    Sucks, but that's barely a living wage in Cali.

    @SortOfTested I wouldn't say that it sucks. It a *very* good amount in my country. You can definitely survive for a few years from 50k, if you wanted to around here.

    Sucks, meaning, "it sucks that in California it's not enough."

    @lamka02sk It sucks if it doesn't cover rent, transport and healthcare etc.

    Doesn't matter how high the salary is then, you're essentially working at a loss. Cost of living over there is insane.

    Now if you're getting that salary for remote work and living somewhere cheap - now that's very nice :-)

    From this we learn that the absolute numbers of how much you earn are pretty much meaningless. I live in Amsterdam, and earn a little more than OP, with my wife who earns a little less than OP. We are not poor, we can pay for our usual expenses (rent, food, transport, going out once in a while, travelling now and then) but we definitely don't feel rich, either. We also have previous experience living in different countries under different conditions.
