Seattle somewhat affordable, tops billing for jobs

Posted: August 15th, 2012 by Brad

Forbes recently reported on the cities where paychecks stretch the furthest by looking at the average annual wages in the nation’s 51 largest metropolitan statistical areas and adjusted incomes by the cost of living. Seattle was placed 9th on the list, but Forbes placed Seattle first on its lists of cities leading the way in manufacturing and cities leading the way in so-called STEM employment growth (STEM means science-technology-engineering-and mathematics related).
 
Housing costs in Seattle, according to Forbes, while high, are far less than in most coastal California or northeast metropolitan areas.
