    Who gets paid six figures?

    Those making six figures are very definitely in the minority nationwide. Only 4.2 percent of U.S. workers with earnings reported making $100,000 or more in 2001, according to the latest data from the Census Bureau. The median annual wage, meanwhile, was $26,002.

    They did not mention CJ, but for sure we have some six-figure workers inside the 4.2% here!

    Interesting, but off topic. Perhaps you should post this in the "Midnight Cafe"...

    Where I live, $100,000 is just slightly above the poverty line.

    $500,000 will get you a starter home here. You'll have to do quite a bit of fix up, though. I'm not kidding.

    Why would you live in areas that don't match the rest of the country? What's a McDOnalds burger cost 8 bucks?

    My area is just as nice as any of yours and the average home is probably just under 100,000 and new construction would run 150 for a modest home. Very nice homes for 250 and wealthy homes 500k +

    Rentals typically run 600 for two bedrooms

    Average household incomes average in the 35k range.

    I didn't seriously mean that people should move. I just feel bad for you all that have to work twice as hard to end up with the same lifestyle I enjoy.

    You don't know when you are well off .....

    An average looking house in London can easily cost $1,000,000 ....

    Not to mention the day to day living costs of jolly old England like petrol - sorry, gasoline - at about $6 a gallon

    We are now one of the most expensive countries in the world - which wouldn't be so bad in itself if anything in the damn country worked!

    I guess that's what they mean when they say, "Nebraska - The Good Life"

    You can find a decent apartment for $400/month in Lincoln. I lived in a crappy furnished two-bedroom apt for a couple years. Average home cost is $95k. You can find fixer-uppers for $40,000 in livable condition.

    Consistency is the key to a winning season.

    When I used to live there back in the 90s, avg 1 bedroom apartment was around $350/mo. Most of 'em were in the north of O street, where land price was a bit cheaper than the south side.
    You still in Lincoln ?

    i used to dream about the day I would hit 6 figures. It does not go as far as it used to, at least I imagine that it does not. This spring, when I was doing my taxes, I did not understand how somebody who made so much money could be so darn poor.

    what a small world. i used to live some where at 56th and vine (lionsgate). just across from super saver. that area was a magnet for many lincolnites besides downtown bars.
    is there anyone else from huskerland too ?

    My plan for early next year is to move from the burbs to an undervalued area of Detroit. I will probably end up with a home from the 1920's like one of these.

    In 7-10 years these things could tripple or more in value if Detroit keeps on the path that it is on...
