New York is not only NYC.
Actually when we moved to FL from NY that resulted in a pay raise. And then to GA for another. Tech executives can get paid well anywhere. The only general NYC exception is the financial industry where they will pay a huge multiple.

I remember seeing the order when I did the Twitter search a week or two ago. What I meant is that I couldn’t find a sea of conservatives decrying the decision when it happened. There was something by a medical group up there and maybe one commentator.

But maybe this was signed behind the scenes, so no one outside of the industry really knew about it under way after the fact?

How so? If you're offered a job with the option to work remotely, your job is remote -- period. You might have to travel to an office building in a different state once a month.

*For the record, my salary is the same here as it would be anywhere else in the country. The whole "you make less in FL than you do in other states" doesn't apply to a myriad of professional occupations.

Except in the past, some jobs that have been remote changed to not remote. For many companies, like the big tech companies, then can and already do pay differently depending on where you live. It is the same with the federal government. You can only get locality pay under normal circumstances if you are living within 2 hours of the locality. Right now that has been waived, since there are people who did alternate work schedules- worked/lived in one city 3 nights a week to do a 4-day workweek and went home for the other 3.

Most jobs do not pay the same in Florida as they do in other states. This is well known.

Can't wait for him to run for President! President Cuomo......say it together, PRESIDENT CUOMO.

Yeah by sending infected COVID into nursing homes, not stockpiling ventilators a few years back, and many/most people leaving are probably IMO Republican voters who don't want to pay Democrat taxes/COL.

They may be "fleeing" New York, we keep hearing that.

But, if they are homeowners, doesn't that mean that they have house/property to sell, so someone has to be moving IN?

Most of us just can't "flee" where we are that easily.

There's a "locality adjustment," you're right. Florida doesn't necessarily rank poorly on a national scale. It's right about average.

https://www.federalpay.org/gs/2020

And while I hate to bring up state income tax, it does make a difference in these cases. 12% state income tax in California, for example, kind of nullifies that 30% vs 19% scale adjustment.

Huh? Most of Florida is the rest of US. Plus, look at Houston. No state income tax and people there get paid more than they make in DC. My understanding is that it is based on market rate, not state income tax. If that were the case, people in Houston wouldn’t be making more than people make in DC.

I don't know much about the federal adjustment stuff that you two are talking about, but in many COL discussions, the Texas megacenters are rarely if ever brought up as examples of the possibility of affordable, big city living that is experiencing nearly the same amount of growth as here.

Kudos.
