Why is housing so expensive?
My job wants me to move but I really can't afford it. Renting would cost half my check, and the houses in my price range are all dumps.

Landlords charge what the market will bear. As long as there are people willing to pay the high rents they now demand, they will continue to raise the rents until the market flattens out.

I have heard of this requirement for management, but not for hourly employees. Check with your HR department.

Why is your employer asking you to move? Is your job relocating?

the average American commute is, i think, 1.5 hours each way (correction: 8% travel this far. the average is 26 min). this is where you start out. hopefully, you outgrow the low salaries and long commutes. most of the time it's not worth it for a job with no potential for upward mobility or valuable new skills taught.
