I know right? I want more people to leave so rents will drop

It's New York. Someone will always want to be here even if someone else leaves. Tbh the city feels like it's back to capacity if not more, I get a bit disoriented by the crowds when I'm out. If you're only thinking of coming or returning now, it's already too late. Rent for my old place went up $600 after I moved out.

Lot of fresh grads with nothing to lose are moving in but higher tax bracket people especially in relationships or married are moving out. Literally every millennial and genx i talk to is trying to buy a house and move out of city.

What’s the point of living in nyc if we don’t even go into the office? Genuinely trying to justify it as a 27 yr old who lives in Hoboken but always wanted to move into the city

If you need people telling you why to live in NYC, then don't. Simple as that.
There's nothing wrong with it, but if you can't come up with a reason when you're not forced to go into an office then it's just not for you.

I decided not to and got a remote job except for client meetings and critical agency get togethers. Just done with commuting and not feeling like city is safe

Honestly you just have to always be vigilant. I grew up here in the 90s and it was always about being aware of who was around you and distancing yourself from questionable scenarios and people, not flashing your possessions, not going running in the dark where no one is around, etc. With that said, I’m not diminishing the fact that crime is up.

Absolutely no one here. Move along.

I’ve been in the HVAC industry for 11 years with 10 of those in the field as a technician. As a technician I was considered very capable and was always considered one of the best where ever I worked.

How did you get into outside sales? Any tips on how I can break into it Thanks for the help

Anybody here work in Canada? Specifically Vancouver? The cost of living here is outrageous, and I feel like I don't have a fair compensation. I'm currently making $75k with a $5k bonus as an EA with 6+ years experience, and 5+ years experience in my company's industry. Our company doesn't give out yearly inflation raises, so I feel like I'm falling behind. Is this fair, or should I be going after more? Can anyone in Vancouver, Seattle, Canada etc. shed some light on their salary?

I want to live in a quaint cottage in an Irish seaside village easy access to Galway or Cork. I just want a simple quiet life with my spouse. Garden and bake pies. Hike or bike along the Irish countryside. Travel and experience other cultures. This is my dream. Everyone thinks I’m weird that I’m not after the 2 million dollar home with a pool like they are. Why is my dream weird and unattainable. They think I set a low bar. All I need is a job where I can work remotely.

I started full time at an agency mid pandemic so have never once worked in the office. I find myself working 50+ hour weeks even from home. Everyone who says "I can't wait to be back at the office" - are they really serious? To tack on commute time and public transit anxiety, wake up at the crack of dawn. Will working from the office somehow decrease the work load and increase productivity? Genuinely curious who wants to go back and why.
