The answer is going to be a wildly massive range so I’ll leave that up to others but one thing you should know is that the cost of buying has far outpaced cost of renting so most discussions around the insane cost of living are alluding to sale prices and not rents

That seems very high. I only spend 7% of gross but I’m extremely frugal, living with housemates, and fairly senior. I could justify going up to about 20%. I think 30% was pretty standard when I was entry level

Double income, 3 kids. We spend 15% of gross, 23% of net on rent. We spend more than that on childcare, or we’d probably be a little more bougie on our living situation.

Any independent contractors? I work for a firm that pays a base salary. Any hours I clock above my base salary, I’ll get 33% of my hourly rate. I’m a first year associate. Is that about normal?

I am a newly promoted supervisor who has been with my company for 3 years. The promotion came with a salary increase & I was happy about that.

However, since in my new role I have come to discover that people I am now overseeing have a higher pay rate than I do. Some have been with the company longer than I have, some have not.

Maybe it was my bad for not asking for not negotiating my pay raise, but I am wondering what you would do in this situation?
