Maybe. I'm in industry (not Big Tech) and my firm has varying payscales for just about every major metro area in the US. In addition, my wife is a teacher and we're in one of the higher paying school districts in the US, so any potential move outta here would have to be weighed against our income level in the new place compared to the new COL.

like

Yeah! We've also got a kid, so then you throw in the cost of childcare as a variable, too. We're in what's an approximately T1.5 city and would only be looking at lower COL areas (current list of possible destinations is Charleston, Nashville, Louisville, and SLC), but we haven't crunched any numbers since it's just an academic exercise as of now.

Until they saw their paycheck adjusted for their new COL. Also the increase in competition for said jobs after the candidate pool gets much much wider. Someone in Idaho with just as good of skills will do the job for 1/8th the cost. Like FAANG is going to let you live in South Dakota like a King/Queen 😂.

The wider candidate pool/increased competition is going to be interesting for sure. I wonder how many people offshore and if companies will hire cheaper workers internationally Also, I’m from South Dakota! I think the winter will scare off most tech workers but people have already flooded the Black Hills with summer homes
