This should take you to a page that is a cost of living comparison calculator

2) Enter 2 different cities and a salary level (I suggest $50,000) to compare the two cities.

3) Next answer the following questions and post them in the Discussion Board

· What two cities and salary did you choose and why?

· Which city is more expensive? On what criteria where they different? Did any of the costs surprise you? Explain.

· Would you expect an employee to accept a pay cut to move to the less expensive city? Why or Why not?

· If you worked in the HR department for a company that asked employees to relocate for job transfers, do you think this calculator would be helpful for planning pay differentials? Explain.
