They do have a lot of wonderful resturants, that is true, and they are bi-lingual too.

Suffice to say; it has all of Phx's drawbacks and many more-----I have lived in both places.
Yep, TUCSON is WAY better, for living, than Phoenix.

It must depend upon one's income level------and, the source thereof.

Here in the Phx area; wages in trades tend to be significantly higher.

Brake, suspension and alignment technician; cars and light trucks.

From personal experience; the wages paid in Tucson are about 30% less-------and, the cost of living (rent, etc) is comparable (or higher) than here in the Phx area.

As you stated........I catch your drift.

And; the commute from Nogales, Sn. is maybe one hour, so wages in trades in Tucson would be depressed even of everyone in the latter city was 100% legal.

Pretty bad when I was making 50% more $$$ in a out of the way town with a tiny population base (Bullhead City area) than Tucson with its 1 million metro. (exact same kind of work)
