Do you think salaries in Lawrence are falling below the national average?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on April 28, 2005
“I’m not sure what the national average is, but I know if I had the same job in Kansas City or another big city, I would be making more.”
“Yes. The salary offers outside of Lawrence are significantly higher. About $2 to $3 more an hour or around $3,000 more for a salaried position.”
“If they have fallen behind, it’s probably because of the high turnover rates caused by the students.”
“I don’t think so. Not when you take the cost of living into account. Lawrence is a good value.”
