Would you move to a NEW city? One that doesn't yet exist.
In the Bay Area, if you're making 200k you'd be spending roughly 30-50% of your post tax money on housing. For the exorbitant money we do spend, we don't get to live in mansions or villas, we're stuck with bare necessities - far from luxurious living. Commutes in most big cities have become unbearable - the average commute in the Bay is 1.5 hours. TC only goes so far in addressing our needs, if we didn't have to depend on such high salaries for insane cost of living, we would be free to pursue jobs based on quality and not just TC. I can't see a reason why anyone would pursue a profession that doesn't pay more than 100k and yet most jobs vital for society don't pay more than that.
When Amazon decided to move to NYC and employ 25K people, it was offered a 1.5B tax credit to do so. What if 25k tech workers decided to move to create a new city. What if we could crowdsource a city, would you be willing to move?
