Low Wages, High Expenses

Good news! C’ville exceeds the national average cost of living while keeping wages are unusually low!

Oh. I’m sorry, that’s actually bad news. It sounded really good at first.

Our overheated housing market and the mounting costs of sprawl aren’t helping any. The collapse of Central Virginia manufacturing industry since NAFTA has particularly hurt. While the problems may be clear, the solutions are murky.

Charlotte$$ville…the best city in America you can’t afford.
