While San Francisco ranks No. 1 for highest tech salary, it falls to No. 20 in terms of overall value, Paysa found. Cost of living reaches nearly $90,000 per year, with the average monthly rent for a three-bedroom apartment in the city center reaching nearly $6,600.
144390 / 52 weeks a year = 2776.73 weekly salary.
2776.73 / 40 hours a week = $69.42 an hour.
Here's a job that showed up in my Indeed.com jobs email:
That's a $44.42 / hour deficit (if you are making the $25 / hour rate), which gets you to $52,000 / year. That would pay for 7 months of the rent mentioned above.
