$15/hr in Phoenix is just enough $$$ to qualify for a home loan so they can inevitably add you to the foreclosure list in a few months.

Who are these people moving across the country for a $15/hr job? Just doesn't seem worth the hassle to me unless you are really hell bent on living in Phoenix. Seems to me their time would be better spent taking advantage NY's low cost of in state tuition during these tough economic times & then be ready to move for some real money once they have a decent education.

Honestly at least try not to be such an obvious troll.
It is strange that someone leaves an area and instead of just moving on cannot stop bashing it.

Las Vegas is one of those places you couldn't pay me to live. But I'm not going on the Vegas thread to bash it.

How is that any different than anywhere else in the USA?

BTW, as of July 19, 2010 the jobless rate in Nevada climbed to 14.2% & in Vegas it was 14.5%

Vegas Jobless Rate At 14.5 Percent - Las Vegas News Story - KVVU Las Vegas

........... meanwhile, New York States unemployment has dropped below the 8.5% needed to continue to get the extended benefits from the federal government ............ looks to me like Nevada's residents are the ones getting fat off the federal governments welfare system.

Enjoy that 110, its 78 with a nice cool breeze blowing off the lake at my house

110 in dry heat with no humidity feels better then 78 with humidity
and your short summer is almost over, when it's 78 Sunny in vegas
from October to March. Buffalo will below freezing and Snowing for months. During the same time period, WNY has lost half it's population
and Las Vegas's population has more then tripled and is still one of the fastest growing area's of the country.

Personally, I cant wait for winter. I love every minute of it & its a big reason I moved here.

You keep telling yourself that about the dry heat but the facts & truth disagree with you. 110 with 10% humidity actually feels like 105, on the other hand 70 with 75% humidity feels like 73. Look it up on any weather service you like. BTW, Our average of 63% afternoon humidity is far from bad. Maybe youre low humidity cry would sell better to someone in Houston of the southeast but WNY is far from a high humidity problem area.

I dont really care how many people WNY has lost. Im not from here but Im glad I live here now. My wife & I both have good jobs & our kids go to a very good school. Our $$$ goes a lot further here than it did in Austin or Colorado Springs. Just because you couldnt get a good job here doesnt mean the rest of us are in the same boat.

I imagine even at 14.5% unemployment that Vegas population will continue to grow as gambling & sex sell. Not exactly the environment Id like to raise my kids in but more power to you if youre ok with it. Hope the water doesnt run out on you soon (though Ive seen reports that claim Vegas will be in serious fresh water trouble within the next 50 years, likely within 25).

Do you think it's any different in NC. BCBS of NC just announced that 90 jobs will be outsourced yesterday.

Also, it doesn't help that Nevada public schools are viewed as being the worst in the US.

What's also interesting is that while the Buffalo metro has lost some people, the Niagara Region on the Canadian side has grown. Considering that they patronize the area in many ways, you could technically add that part of Canada to the metro, unofficially.
