re: Why (I think) "Cost of Living" pay for remote workers is BS. VIEW POST


THIS!!!! I'm so glad you mentioned the race/zip code thing.

My cost of living isn't just where I live. It's my student loans. It's paying off the high interest debt I went into while learning to code, attending a bootcamp in NYC, and looking for a job for 7 months. It's coming from a lower income family, helping my mom pay the rent, and being the go-to person for emergencies, given that I'm the highest earner in my family by far.

Someone else's cost of living might involve having kids, or a health problem/disability, or taking care of an elder.

Just pay people what they're worth!
