its actually pretty hard to live in anchorage on a decent wage. everything is hiked up price-wise because we have to ship all of our consumer products up here by barge or by 18-wheeler, which drives everything way up and on top of that, I would say a good living wage for a single person would need to be at least 30,000 annualy just to make it, and that's not taking into account any monthly debts other than rent, utility, and vehicle cost. If you've got a house, or pay more than 300 pm for car or have a credit card you pay on or you rent storage space, you better bump your salary up another 10,000 annual. Also, apparently, one in eighteen people that live here are millionaires, so expect most things to cater to that type of lifestyle.
