That doesn't leave you much choice then... right?

That'll depend on the job you might get... won't it?

Okay to clarify there's a lot of suburbs of Detroit not just the ones that sit at the border line like Eastpointe Grosse Pointe, Roseville, and Warren. I'm talking all of them does anybody know where.

I'm looking to make at least 2000 a month net so that would be enough to take care of the place i live at and be able to live comfortable not boujee like most people try to be.

The type of job doesn't matter much though

For most... it will matter most.

We start with what we can do well (so we can get paid well)
then we look toward what we would like to do going into the future.
Follow?

Where does that leave you?
Where are they hiring for whatever it is that you can do well?
Where are they paying better than that ...for whatever else it is you're willing to do?

otoh... if you don't have any actually useful job skills --that can get you paid well or not--
then you should probably look for a job that will train you up to be able to do more.
Wages and Training. That's hard to beat.

Why are you posting in the Economics section? You'd have much more accurate answers in the Detroit section.

Educational background? Work experience? You aren't giving a lot to go off of.

One thing to consider if working downtown, a parking spot is going to run $150-300 a month, depending on the garage/lot. The nicer places and the cheaper places will have very long waiting lists- some a year or longer. You can find some surface lots that charge $5-10 a day as long as there aren't any events going on. $5 is going to get you on the service drive on the other side of Greektown Casino. $10 will get you in Greektown. Closer to Woodward will be even more.

Don't forget City of Detroit Income Tax.


There is one rate if you both live and work in the city, and half that rate if you only do one of the two.


Personally, I prefer both living and working in Detroit suburbs without Income Tax.
