Running in my 8th year in construction here in the SE. In my second job right now as a PM and Risk Management (5th year). I have a Masters Degree in Construction and additional certification programs from Cornell University, I think I am good with the pay I am getting (FOR NOW!) BUT

Currently get paid 10 PTO+6 holidays in addition to winter shutdowns from December 24th to Jan1st. Hence the PTO is limited to 10 for new hires upto completion of 5 years.

Is this a fair PTO for someone in year 8?

Between Chicago and DC, which city would be better for raising kids? For context, I am an Asian man who is married. Here are the simple pros and cons that I thought of:

Chicago
Pros: lower cost of living; central location makes it convenient to fly out
Cons: not as many East Asians (!?) - perhaps there are other East Asian pockets here that I have not seen, but the suburbs here feel quite White

DC:
Pros: more Asian diversity; Nova has great public schools
Cons: higher cost of living

Thanks!
