I guess that is why I see so many people flocking to Pittsburgh.

People move to Florida for the weather.

Nope. Hence the cost of living struggle millions of Floridians are experiencing.

Of course. Who, in their right mind, would walk away from careers or just good well paying jobs, sell their houses and relocate to a place where they are going to earn $10 an hour and live in a $300,000 house. Certainly the weather is not the only factor in play,

""In 2000, the median home value in Northwest D.C. was $136,200, or $150 per square foot. Today it’s more than triple that: $484,000, or $533 per square foot.

Renting in the District has become prohibitively costly for anyone not working a white-collar job, a phenomenon mirrored in New York, San Francisco, Oakland and Seattle. A District household now needs to make $119,000 annually to comfortably afford a two-bedroom apartment, according to a recent study.

Those costs have limited the housing options available to people at nearly every income level in the city. “Affordable housing” in Washington is no longer a poor people’s issue. It is a middle-class issue, a senior citizen issue, a young-worker issue and a family issue.
""

Do you think the people above who can't afford to live in such cities care if they are the most important places in the world?
