Cost of Living

This might seem like a dog bites man story: but people in several professions cannot afford to rent in the D.C. area. WAMU provides an interesting break down of the average salary needed to rent one bedroom apartments, two bedroom apartments and pay for a median priced home. Then they post the average salary in various professions and while it's no surprise that many servers probably live in group houses, teachers and software programmers also don't fare as well as you might think.
