The pay checks in juneau must be "HUGE"considering the rooms for rent on craigs list are right around $700 a month---thats just for a room.
Whats the deal, how do people afford this ???

I know what you mean!!! My husband and I were considering a transfer to Juneau but there is no WAY we could afford the rent. We would need at least a 3 bedroom but our last name would have to be Trump in order to afford it...:-(

well if you consider how people are paid here it kinda makes sence. most people are paid $14 to $18 an houre, I have never paid anything under $1500 a month and thats not even for a house..you deffinatly need two or more jobs to live here!

Sounds like Hawaii, everyone there works their ass off at as many jobs as they can find.Hawaii, like Alaska has a price for paradise.I'd never be able to aford to live there but I still want to visit.
I think thats most likley what the folks of Juneau would prefere---visit and leave.

Are there good areas and bad areas of Juneau? If I am going to be paying that kind of rent I at least want to be in a good area.
