Job hunters in the SF Bay Area are left wondering why their experience is a miss-match to this exciting news.

Don't they have their H-1B card, or is it that they expect to earn a living wage?

In California the fiscal cliff hits you. See the passage of Prop 30. And the impending demise of Prop 13, despite already well above average per capita taxation. I just hope we can climb out of it.

California is doing better, even the Jewelry district is seeing gains. What the increased sales tax and high earner tax will do remains to be seen. But as of January 1st, California is the most expensive place to buy anything sales taxed.

It's also worth noting that the new monies for education will not go to education for a couple years. They go to a teacher pension fund. That's not education. Or textbooks, or smaller class sizes or computers in classrooms.
It's a pension fund resupply.

Are you at 10%, including food, like the larger Alabama cities? Of course, we get to live in Alabama.

And this is before 30 kicks in, add .25%, plus localities are raising theirs.

So there's a lot of states with higher sales tax, even after the hike. Ten. California won't even be in the top 20% of sales tax.

re: #7 Obdicut

Well it varies after you add the local. 6.5 plus 3.5 is ten freaking percent. A significant disincentive to buy when money is still tight. It's wrong to ignore the local%. After all it has to be paid. 10% is higher than all according to the link.
The following numbers are from before prop 30 passed. When they raised the state tax it raised the total for all of us.

States With the Highest Sales Taxes

Tennessee came in as the state with the highest combined state and local sales tax rate with a top combined rate of 9.44%. After Tennessee, the states with the highest state and local sales tax rates are California (9.08%), Arizona (9.01%), Louisiana (8.69%), Washington (8.61%), New York (8.52%), Oklahoma (8.33%), Illinois (8.22%), Arkansas (8.10%) and Alabama (8.03%).

re: #8 Political Atheist

I don't like sales taxes either, because they're regressive. I'd be a lot happier if they were progressive taxation. But local taxes are local taxes; they're not state sales tax. The main reason California has such high ones at the local level is because of Prop 13, which eradicates the main method for localities to raise taxes.

But I'd rather have 0% sales tax, or at least a highly progressive system.
