And you live in California. There are some benefits you are overlooking. The only reason the cost of living in Calgary is going up is because of the price of oil. We don't have the benefit of living in a beautiful climate.
The reason I'm choaked is that I've lived here for close to twenty years, and, while I'm in the middle of my schooling, all of a sudden the price of oil skyrockets and, with that, the cost of living jumps. So now I'm looking at a hundred and fifty dollar rent hike on one of the few basement suites that were available in my price range, which I only aquired late last year.
Did I mention that I live underneith a day home? I hate those damn kids.
I don't understand people complaining about minimum wage really. If it isn't enough, then you need to do something to get a job that pays more.
Lazy pricks, eh? Who cares if they are students attempting to scrape by enough to pay their living expenses so that they can improve their fortunes. They should just figure out a way to improve their situation right now.
