$30,000 would be a difficult income to live on anywhere! I mean, let's get real. I actually agree that $50,000 would be a difficult income to live on pretty much anywhere. I mean seriously, think of mortgage/rent being anywhere from $1,500 t0 $2,000 a month, and you are already up to almost $24,000 a year right there, and that's after tax if one rents. Pretty tough to spend serious money on clothing when almost half your scratch is to keep a roof over your head.
