Oddly Enough, People Still Live There

Now I completely agree that King County is an expensive place to live, but when you read a report stating that most people can't afford to live there you can't help but laugh at the idiocy of the logic. I am reminded of the Yogi Berra quote, "That restaurant is too crowded, nobody goes there anymore." From our esteemed Seattle-PI

Most jobs in King County and throughout the state don't pay enough to provide a basic "living wage" for a single-parent family, and little more than half the jobs will sustain families even when both parents are working, according to a new report on the gap between living wages and job availability in Washington.
