    Don’t know, I assume it’s offering 50% cash up front for the period you’re signed for, or something similar.

    78615.

    Which would be equivalent to India having 306K in one day.

    I’m surprised India hasn’t been hit harder, that was my bet for the largest breakout anywhere.

    Been to rural China, East Africa, but India is the only place I’ve ever been that I’d describe as truly third world. People living on top of each other, super dense, literally shitting in the street.

    They’re also a democracy with a lot of provinces / states in constant conflict, just like us.

    Place is about to blow

    Lol what the fuck. We’re under testing and we’re testing 10-15k per day. And we’re a third of Florida’s population with a 1-2% positivity rate.

    Has to be bad faith, right?

    I just lost out on a house here on central coast of CA to a Bay Area bidder who was cash and $50k over ask and this isn’t the first time that’s happened to me in last couple months. Basically every nice home here sells in a week for over ask to somebody from out of the area so it’s happening.

    Tallahassee is still basically in full mask compliance. Does your county have a mandate? Or just a "please wear a mask"?

    yeah Desantis doesn’t need to tamper down testing. He started doing that a month ago and it’s been a pretty agressive decline. Cases started dropping about 6-7 weeks ago and deaths lag a month but we are still seeing 200 death days. Either the deaths are lagging 2 months now or the testing, cases, hospitalizations and % positive numbers are being manipulated. Or were a month ago at least.

    Even if you use the cases a month ago and the death numbers recently, the death rate per case has tripled from June/July. If anything, that should be going down with hospitals less stretched and our ability to treat patients with covid becoming greater as we learn more about the virus.

    Probably the darkest sentence I've ever read was about how we can't fight the climate change fires in California because we normally use prisoners to do that but they can't because they're all sick.

    I interviewed someone fleeing last week. They’re planning on living in an RV but still “needed” / expected 180k/year as a front end developer.

    Some pretty harsh realities ahead for gen z developers who’ve never been through a downturn before, especially when they have no idea what the rest of the country accepts as pay.

    On the flip side, if you work for a Bay Area company that pays devs out there more than you since you're in another part of the country it's not unreasonable to ask for equal pay.

    Oh for sure. I made a NYC salary living in a small town in Florida for like, a decade.

    The catch was I was always one of the only remote employees and they weren’t actively hiring other remote workers so it just never came up.

    Once a company starts hiring remote folks routinely they quickly learn they can hire a straight badass for 80k not 180k, and a badass expat in like, Brazil which is also EST, for about 50-60k.

    IMO big tech embracing remote isn’t going to benefit people the way they think. It’s going to shake out like a giant salary normalization (up in small towns, dramatically down in big).

    Lifestyles are sure going to improve though. SF has turned into some sort of dystopian hellscape these last few years.

    Maybe, but I get multiple recruiters hitting me up on LinkedIn daily. I think until that stops happening I don't think there's going to be a huge salary crash. I can see some of the extreme salaries you'd get in SF or NYC, like you mentioned, maybe coming down a little bit.

    Yeah, I’m specifically thinking of SF and that dev I interviewed. I hired someone I think might be better for over 100k less, and now I can hire another dev. I’ll get two senior devs instead of one.

    The guy I hired just moved from a city and bought a ton of land in the middle of the sticks. Wanted a flexible remote job and didn’t need the same kind of pay.

    We’ve got a job posting up now and there’s a -ton- of people that seem to be up for the same. I have to think the market will adjust accordingly at same point, one way or another.

    Yeah I did a rapid test at my doctors office this morning. I was already pretty certain I had it because of the body aches and chills. I figured I either had Covid or the flu. My stomach has been really messed up too but I have IBS too so it doesn't take much.
