    43K U.S.?! That's like a billion dollars a year in Canadian funds. Still Toronto's pretty cheap comparatively...

    That's the total amount of revenue sharing disbursement to municipal governments from the Province of Ontario in 2002.

    $47K w/ masters and 3 years exp.

    When my husband and I got our first New York paychecks after moving back from SC, I literally got a little lightheaded to see how much our checks were for - almost double what we made in South Carolina, and that was even if you threw in the income from our second jobs at Books a Million and Blockbuster so that we wouldn't default on our student loans.

    With a Bachelor's degree in Education and Masters in Planning, 3 months after graduating from "Planning school" my first job, with little experience, was 48K...in Oklahoma(Cost of Living In Oklahoma is 87% of the national average)!! After 7 years of teaching I made less than half of the beginning planner salary! I love this profession!!!

    my first job was in Peoria, IL i make 41k.

    i've been out of school for 1.5 years and this is my second job, first one was for a planning/engineering firm for 36k.

    cost of living here is 94% of the national average, although the stats i found were old. i'd say it's close to 98% now.

    Not enough...

    42k + real good bennies.

    But then, I get to live in the Cascades of Oregon. Cost of living is actually pretty low here. Much higher in Eugene or Portland.
