My fiance and I would like to move to Philly and I'm trying to figure out our income and budget. My fiance is a ceramic tile installer and has his license, insurance, tools, and van. In Charlotte, NC he gets about $4 a sq. ft (anywhere from $4 to $7 depending on if it's on the floor or a backslash, special pattern, ect....) so I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how much we should expect him to make in Philadelphia. Square foot or by the job, I'm at least looking for a ballpark figure.... We need to be prepared if his pay in Philly is going to be half of what he makes now!! Any info or suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

I would imagine it's more up here, but relative to your cost of living, it will probably be a wash. A tile setter up here probably get's 16-20 bucks an hour.

I would look on Craigslist's help wanted ads, call or email explaining your situation and ask them what your husband could expect to earn up here.
