    Shouldn't housing percentage calculated over after tax income? I mean, what's the point of counting money you'll never see as income?

    kinda curious about geographic breakdown.

    i took a job at a non profit after 10 years employment at tc 113k in Portland. i justify the low wage by a) 30k non profit discount and b) low cost of living compared to the bay.

    Didnt read the pretax portion before voting. Add another vote to 10-20 and take one from 20-30.
