To all who want to move to Tampa and jobs. Take a look at one of the major job sites (indeed.com, etc) and look at all the jobs you arent qualified for and stay where you are.
If you see jobs that you are qualified for, start packing.

nah, I left that **** hole. I moved back to Atlanta. I came to tampa to run track at USF. I graduated, found out it was a **** hole outside of the university and moved back to ATL. My girl still lives in Tampa though. She wants me to move back. Comin on this site just shows me nothing has changed there. U guys have ybor and south howard. that's it! U have 2 choices. U can go hang out with post frat boys or thug wannabee's. Sorry, that's all u have.

Yeah, and how was being completely shutdown for a snow/icestorm just a couple weeks back go for everyone there in ATL?
Oh and then the hellish summers you also get there that are just as bad if not worse as here?
Oh and being one of the top cities in highest crime rate? Crime in America: Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities Over 200,000 | Law Street (TM)

Funny, i found a job easily in IT here that pays considerably more than what i was making up north, and there are just more and more positions opening up down here every week, PROFESSIONAL jobs too not just call center and restaurant jobs!
Ahh haters gonna hate, you can take ATL and stay there, it really just gets old

WillStyles obviously stayed near Suitcase City or SoHo. There's more to Tampa than those areas....you have Wellswood, Seminole Heights, Tampa Heights, Riverside Heights which are middle/upper middle class areas. My neighbors own the Columbia restaurant. Don't judge an area if you don't know it. Even the suburban areas are up to par with ATL's Conyers, Alpharetta, etc. if it wasn't for the Olympics or CNN + numerous Fortune 500 companies (Delta, Coca-Cola, UPS, etc.) that invest in Atlanta. The city would be like the rest of Georgia "backwood"! Tampa is trying to grow up due to a crappy economy give it another 5-10 years and you'll have a beast to mess with.

maybe you didnt hear about it, but the middle class has been wiped out. Either your're making good money or your flipping burgers. it doesnt take a whole lot of money, you don't have to be a doctor or a lawyer or whatever. you just have to be willing to give an honest days work for an honest days pay. that is something you kiddos dont understand. you dont get the gold ring by walking in the door telling the interviewer how smart you are and how you got a degree. I bet you a pulling down the big bucks in Atlanta, right?

So you are saying everyone that's struggling is just not willing to give an honest day work?.

If they are "struggling" and have decent jobs they need to put down the latest cell phone, cancel the all channel cable, drive a cheaper car, eat out less, or if they dont want to do that, get a part time job to
make up the slack. It's a little thing called "sacrifice' which most people aren't willing to do.

If they are "struggling" and have low incomes, they need to get training to improve their situation. Get a Pell Grant or other grants that are given out like candy at a county fair.

If they bought too much house than they can afford, sell it, rent it or walk away from it.
Don't make that mistake again.

It's all very simple. The younger generation thinks the ballgame changed against them. Its the same as it always was. You go to work, you do your job, you get paid. If they put down the toys and games
and the "must haves" they will do much better with what they've got.

Bottom line: Be responsible.

Of course everything has changed, baby boomers were able to buy a house, raise a family with a factory job, you were able to get a trade, now you can't, this has nothing to do with Tampa or Florida.

The idea of a man raising his family with a blue collar job is dead. Those days are over, the world has changed, there is no going back for those that would like to. The sooner people stop referencing it the sooner we can forget that once was and we can enjoy what we have now, a mess.
