>mfw quitting my job for another that pays 50% more.
move to shitty apt sell all possessions live like poorfag for 2 years. Save all money and get head start.
2.5% is a cost of living increase. If you're less than 5 years into your career out of college, counter that bullshit offer. Tell them 5% is more in line with your expectations based on the value you bring. I'm personally walking if I don't get 10%.
2.5% is something they give dead-end people or people who topped out with a fairly high salary for their position (maybe middle managers in the high 5/low 6 figures for example).
This, senpai. Worked in consulting have had a 13.5% raise over the last 18 months (1 raise every 6 months.) Still quit because I got a job offer that raised me from $80K to $120K. Was only on the job market for 3 weeks. You should seriously make a move before the economy goes south.
reverse that story and it sounds awesome
>landlord raises rent
>get raise at work
>tfw fucking some 5/10 arab girl tomorrow to end 6 month dry streak
I don't know how I feel about this
>>finally get a job
>>job is working in a smokeshop selling crackpipes and drain cleaner to homeless people
in my country landlords can't raise the rent more than three times, and even then it's heavily regulated, like he can't exceed a certain percentage. he can't kick you out either as long as you're paying your rent. my grandparents have been renting an apartment now for 50 years in one of the nicest parts of the city for like $40 whereas the price in the area is around $200-$250.
>mfw roomate moving out to live with gf
>mfw can't find a roomate
>mfw rent is now doubling to $1400 per month
>mfw only single bedroom I can find is $1000-$1200
Good dammit I hate this city... literally no 1 bedrooms to rent under $1000

koreans need tons of plastic surgery to get rid of ugly mongoloid looks
The people who pay for that are newer tenants, who have a smaller number of properties to chose from and are thus forced to compete and drive up prices. If you lived in a society where your grandparents were paying market rate, then the market rate would probably be $100 lower. Yet another way in which the young subsidise the old.
Hint: It's really not that cheap unless you want to live in a damp, dingy, dark, dirty, noisy room and eat nothing but rice and beans. If you want the same quality of life you have now it will cost you the same. Yes, rent will be cheaper but everything else is marked up and you will get taken advantage of on every transaction.
Tell your landlord you will leave and find somewhere else to live if he raises the rent.
Sure he can find a new tenant, but then he has to go through all the paperwork again. Most landlords will balk.
How much is he raising it?
I totally want to do this. Have been there several times, there's some cheap properties over there. You buy all cash and live off of your investments.
