Hey, I resemble that remark. I work for the State of Vermont and VT is not a cheap place to live. I have had my job for 7 years and don't make the top starting salary offered for this job. That's just the way it is here. It work here because I want to live here. I wouldn't live in Alabama if you melted me and poured my in there so I work for slave wages here.

You obviously don't understand the market dynamics.

What they want is someone who wants to live there, because someone who wants to live there will be happy with any vaguely decent paying job. Shucks, they'll be happy with a *job*.

That's how it really works.

Lived there, done that.
