Clinical Intern in SE, Michigan

18 months ago

I read a lot of posts on this forum about people complaining about MT/MLS salary.
My suggestion is move to SE Michigan. I am starting out at over 26 dollars an hour with shift
Differential. This is equivalent to what people make in Chicago, DC, or NYC area however the
cost of living is drastically lower. Everyone is touting California starting pay which I agree is the highst in the nation. The problem is a starter house in California will cost 3-4x more then a starter house in the suburbs of Detroit or Flint, Mi.

I guess the point of this post is of you make 26 an hour in NYC you are living like a working class individual. If you make that amount here (which you do) you can live in a 1600 sq foot house in a nice suburb for a 700 dollar house payment and still have lots of money left over.

don't just think salary... Think about the area you live in also.

And yes I do agree Detroit and Flint do remind one of Somalia or some kind of post
Apocalyptic mad max film. However, it's almost magical how nice the suburbs are just minutes away
When you pass some imaginary boundary (8 mile rd) or Dort hwy that separates the two.

I am very happy I chose this field.
