Annoyed and confused

Posted on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 at 9:26 AM

Okay let me just get one thing straight here. I would truly love to know how students in this city can afford the cost of living without a job, even a part-time job. If you're as lucky as I am, your family hauls in an immaculate income, but that is rare. I am an unemployed student and spend nearly $200/week on groceries, toothpaste, batteries, etc. Aside from the weekly essentials, how can students even afford to live here with these insane increasing water and cable bills? It is ridiculous. And there are ZERO jobs. Not to mention, the tax rate in NS is one of the highest in this country. That just frustrates me beyond belief. I have money and do not want to waste it in this city. And if I feel that way with money, what do others feel like without? Everything is significantly more expensive here, even coffee. WTF. I can't comprehend what we are paying more for or the reason for it. It's extremely unfortunate. And don't even get me started on air fare. Who is running this city again? —Halifux Problems
