Interesting that the unemployment rate went up nearly half a percent in one month. Wonder what spurred that? The nursing shortage might have to do with the low salaries here. I don't imagine many want to take a massive pay cut to work here.

Of course, you ignore the lower col as well. Typical Florida bashing

The cost of living isn't that much lower, in fact besides rent other costs aren't too dissimilar from living in NYC. Orlando's average rental rate of $887 a month is well above what it should be for a city with an average median income of 39K ($2500 net per month). Furthermore Florida ranks 37th for average salary and is the 15th most expensive state to live in, so it's not bashing unless you're a homer with blinders on.

Orlando's average rent is less than 1/3 of NYC's.

Uhhhh, not really...unless one is talking just Manhattan. One can find nice apartments in Brooklyn, Queens, Jersey City, Hoboken, etc. for $1500-$2000 per month, while making nearly double what one makes in Orlando...so pretty much nearly a toss up in terms of rental housing budget.

If you think that fl and Manhattan share similar col outside of rent, your sadly mistaken.

I don't pay six bucks for milk or cereal here. No income, lower sales gasoline and property taxes etc.

You really should put your agenda in your sig for all to see when you post in these forums. You do a disservice to people trying to get accurate information about this state

A registered nurse in NY has an annual mean wage of $74,100, a registered nurse in Florida has an annual mean wage of $61,780 (most recent BLS data). A difference of $12,320, now start off by subtracting $4145 for state income tax and you have a difference of $8175. Hardly a massive pay cut. Now calculate the difference in rental cost of $2638 for NY and $1298 for Florida (values gathered within last 30 days by myapartmentmap.com) , that is over $16000 a year. At this point we have not figured in for local income tax rates which many areas in NY have but seems Florida is ahead by almost $8000.

Compared to NY Florida is MUCH cheaper in almost every aspect. I am trying to move back for that very reason.

Rent may not be triple on Long Island (where I live) but it is more than double Florida and you get a hell of a lot less. Gas is generally 40c more per gallon. Food costs a ton due to unions and lack of serious competition. Forget beer and liquor - I love coming to Florida and only paying twenty-something for a bottle of Grey Goose and not the almost $40 it is here for the same size.

I rent a 3br apt (the 3rd bedroom is smaller than a walk-in closet I had in Orlando) it rents for about $2k/mo plus utilities. If I was looking for the place today it would be about $2500. (I've had it for 5 years now and the rental market is going up like crazy because people can't afford houses)

One reason the rent is so high is because of house prices and taxes. This apt is a duplex house - which would go for maybe $225-$250k in Florida in its current condition. Up here it's about $550k+ and $15K in annual taxes on top of that.

Don't forget the state income tax in NY which for someone making $60K is nearly $500/mo. Plus the sales tax on everything at just under 9%.
