At 2 years I am at about $17.36/hr, somewhere around there. Going to be getting at least a 3% raise, union negotiated, and possible another 2% I believe for cost of living in June. Which will bring me up to a little over 18. When you pass your probation, 6 months, you get a raise, not sure how much though but should be 16 something.

Missoula, city, has some of the highest property taxes in the state. If you are looking to rent in the city, expect to pay about $900 for a decent two bedroom apartment. You can find cheaper places but they can be scary. If you rent outside city limits, you can probably find homes for $900. Outside of Missoula County I have seen, when I was looking to move, decent two bedroom homes go for $700 per month. Things may have changed since then (two years ago). We are also a college town so that tends to drive things up a bit.

I am not sure what the utilities come out to be. My wife pays them but I know it's cheaper than when we lived in Humboldt County in California. Gas is about $2.25 right now. Milk is $3.50 per gallon. Phone + unlimited internet (cable) is about $50-60. No sales tax

But I don't know how rent is in the Bay Area or other bills. So not sure how it equates.

20 years younger would be enough for me. That sounds like a heck of nice life after spending decades in the nutty, ridiculous, rat race in a SoCal.

Yep.

This one shows that $15/hr (~$30k per year) in Missoula is equal to about $25/hr (~$50k per year) in San Francisco.
