to most 21-25 year old's coming out of college that is good money in slc. you have to remember utah is relatively inexpensive. rent is ~ $800/month for a 2-bed and you can buy a large house for 250-400k. most condo's downtown are around $200-$350/sqrt ft. its at least half the cost as some of the larger east coast cities so many people make less.
fuckkkk.. you need at least 200k to live well in Vancouver.
