We moved down there in 2005, arrived in March and rented while waiting for our house to be built. I knew immediately that we made a mistake. Six years later we sold and now I only come to the Florida boards for chuckles.

That's part of the problem. I say if you have minimum wage skills, you get minimum wage jobs. Like somebody's friend who gets $12 an hour for "monkey" work.

Then by all means you should stay in Texas and enjoy the big bucks.

You also fail to mention how TX pays more for professional jobs than FL..

Your past postings indicate that you have been trying to leave FL for years now. What is the hold up. Get out of FL before you get lost in the swamp.

You must enjoy overpaying for your cookie cutter home that looks like it was built in 3 days. Oh wait, did I distract you from another Casey Anthony sighting? Sorry.

None of my business but it's probably taken him/her years to save up with the low pay...

How did Florida get in this mess ?

What mess? I love it here. We bought a house a few years ago and it's appreciating nicely. We're good.

I don't fail to mention anything. I have previously provided links elsewhere on this subject from the Bureau of Labor statistics.

Texas pays more in various professional fields and positions, and Florida pays more in other professional fields and positions. In some positions, the pay difference is barely worth mentioning.

An engineer in Florida is not necessarily making less than an engineer in Texas. A lawyer in Florida is not necessarily making less than a lawyer in Texas. It is all heavily dependent on industry and employer, as well as heavily location dependent.

For example: Financial managers make more in FL than in TX. Human resource managers make more in TX than in FL. Construction managers make more in Florida than in Texas. Surveyors in Florida make more than surveyors in Texas. Aerospace Engineers make more in Texas than Florida. Social workers make more in Florida than Texas..... etc. etc. etc.

He's a TX cheerleader and doesn't like to hear anything bad about it, true or untrue
