worst city for income and health care - 7/25/2016
moved to Atlanta when I was 14, left when I was 25 and don't want to ever back. It's impossible to live within 30 minutes of work if you're a member of the working class. People in San Francisco laugh at people in Atlanta who complain about the cost of living, but what they don't realize is that middle class incomes in San Francisco are about four times what they are in Atlanta. Minimum wage in Atlanta is the same as the federal, even though Atlanta is the most expensive city in the Deep South except Miami, even more expensive than Tampa. You have to live in the suburbs in order to buy a gallon of milk for less than $4. Also, the healthcare system is so crooked. People who can do yard work with no difficulty can get disability but thousands of residents with a real disability are told they don't qualify, probably because the state doesn't have enough revenue to give them disability because too much of their revenue is given to too many people who don't really need disability.  Read More

Moving to Atlanta - 3/2/2016
From NYC moving to Atlanta. Where to live (have my senior disabled mom with me)?

I hear that Northeast, GA (Lawrenceville, Snellville etc.) is nice and mostly safe (There is no place on this earth that is completely safe and/or without DRAMA- This is not Heaven). So, thriving school and church areas etc., would be suffice. We are very Street Smart so Atlanta would not scare us. There has to be some decent areas in Atlanta. I wonder if Atlanta gets a bad rap due to the majority of the population being African Americans ( As Harlem and certain areas in Brooklyn NY).

Atlanta is not a good place to live - 3/1/2016
I moved to this Atlanta thinking that they have many opportunities in the workforce. It is not true, I work in the medical field and cannot get a job here. I been living here too long, and ready to move from Ga. The people here have mistreated, lied, and broke into my home about 5 years ago. These people are very rude, backstabbing, and jealous. You cannot make friends with anyone because you will be afraid of what they may do behind your back. I have had a tenant that live next door to me, and I allowed her to come inside my home. She got very jealous of me, when she seen my furniture she begin to copy it. She put the same furniture in her house. And I went on Link IN these same woman copied some jobs from what I have on my profile. I do not trust these people in what they do they are serious backstabbers. I will be moving this year, cannot take this CRAP Read More

Jacksonville or Tampa??? - 2/22/2016
Ready to leave Atlanta, GA where I was born and raised because of overpopulation and the traffic that comes with it. Lived in New Smyrna Beach, FL for a short while years ago and loved it but the job market is poor for what I do (CNC machinist). Lots of jobs in Tampa and Jacksonville but I've never spent time in either so some advice on which place is better would be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind that the quality of the beach is very Read More

I wish someone would have been able to warn me!! : - 2/20/2016
We didnt have a choice. NCR relocated world HQ to Atlanta after 120 years in Dayton. After a year looking in Ohio, we packed up my youngest daughter, left my oldest daughter, & son n law, my husbands 2 kids, ailing mother, hubbys father...entire family. My husband was with NCR for 27 years. April they kicked him to the curb. Said they didnt have a position for him any longer...27 years GONE. I have been in Medical Management for 25 years. I have already been through several offices here. People here are the flakiest people I have ever met. Just when you think you have seen it all. Weirdest thing is, most of them didnt originate here....has to be something in the water...probably extra floride. I have never been unemployed in my adult life, nor has my husband. Now BOTH of us have been looking for work for almost A YEAR!!! The numbers are padded, unemployment is off the chart, auto insurance cost more than twice what I paid in Ohio because people here drive like lunatics.

Do Not Consider Relocating to Atlanta Georgia or S - 1/27/2016
My spouse's job relocated our family to the Atlanta Georgia area. I thought it was going to be a great move for our family. Prior to moving to Atlanta I heard that it was hard to find a job in Atlanta. I had hopes for Atlanta and thought that maybe it would be different for me. Turns out everyone who told me not to move here was right. The unemployment rate is ridiculous high, it is very hard to get a job here, and the schools are not diverse in affordable areas.

Atlanta is very segregated; rich from the poor and black to white. Atlanta is a nice place to live in you are well off or have a decent paying job to live. If you are low income I repeat DO NOT MOVE TO ATLANTA!!! My spouse and I are middle class with just my spouse's income alone. I'm not happy being a stay at home spouse. Read More
