Jack, You will be living in poverty here making only $21,000...Stay where you're at, as you will not be benefiting yourself at all.
The illegals have taken over the area. I live in the next town over, so I know the area well.
To rent a 1 bedroom apartment will cost you around $1,300 a month...and we're not talking a nice apartment at that price. It's very expensive to live here and most of us are being force out to lower wages.

^^ what she said

(i live in Upland, the city just beyond the northern border of ontario). if you get by with $750 a month in Iowa, expect to see a 100% gain..... and that is just to pay rent. unless your work is IN ontario, where you can get by with a bicycle, that means you can only go as far as you can pedal when you're not working. you will need a car.....

unless that 21k salary is gonna increase soon, its not worth it.

Trolley system? Maybe in San Francisco.
Trolley system is all over Southern California a special San Diego, Los Angels, Riverside and Orange county and even if it is not in your town it is only a bus ride away or a drive away. Oh and besides there is trains and coasters to and San Francisco don't have trolley they only have street cars from what i under stand which is those old trains that roll on the train tracks through the city. I am sure they have amtrak though. I was born in Walnut Creek, CA and raise in Placerville which is outside of Sacramento and also raised in El Cajon which is in San Diego county so i know quit a bit about CA and i am moving back but not to neither of the places. I am moving to a suburb town that is away from the city but still near everything called Hemet so i am sure that will work out way better plus they have a Wal-Mart Super center which i can transfer to in tell i get a government job or start a career like a loan signer and/or college.

What are you talking about? I've lived in OC all my life and never seen anything that could remotely be called a trolley here. We have OCTA buses for illegals and Metrolink light rail for commuters headed into LA. That's it unless you count the monorail at Disneyland.

I never said it went all through the cities in south California i just said there all over Southern California and Metrolink goes from LA to Riverside co. and other areas too. There are also other trolley and train service like amtrak and i know when i lived in San Diego Co. it was all over there so i could go from El Cajon into Santee, La Mesa, San Diego, etc. it might not be conveniently located like the city bus system in Orlando which runs all over Orlando area but not regular route in the town i live in yet but I'll be back in CA in a few months. Well trust me California, New York have it better than most states and that is one of many why i am moving back. That and i have close family members near by and better colleges and more opportunities.

Ok i been living outside of California for last 8 1/2 years and it was the worse mistake i probably made and that is why i am moving back. You people need to realize as far as cost of living goes other states are catching up and there neighboring states are not much behind. In offense of California though since the price hike things have came down and adjusted in a lot of areas but there our some areas that are still real high, remember you can get fix up houses really cheap you just have to be careful of the area and to the extend of the damage and that way you can save. The nice thing about California is that there is a lot of good colleges, technology jobs, government, etc. You name it and it probably is there, i know i am moving back not the same area but in a fairly low area for California oh and the crime is not that bad either. I know where i live in Florida and where i am moving back to in California the cost of living is about the same. The truth is that if your from some where then home is home and nothing can replace missing that home no matter how long you been away.

I agree with everyone and anyone who said "Do not come here for $21,000/yr!!!!!!!!!". Unless you get more money, it will be impossible - rent alone will be around $1,000 plus utilities and food??!!! Also, most likely you will need a car/insurance/gas, everyone needs a car in cali... So, assuming you'll bring home around $1,300/mo (after taxes) - I'd say you probably won't make it and... why would you even want to?? Everybody else is trying to leave . The cost of living out here is absolutely ridiculous.
