How much money do you need to make to live happily in Philadelphia?
Do you think that with more money you would have more problems? Even the legendary Notorious BIG’s song once said, “It’s like the more money we run into, the more trouble we see.”
But is it really so?
Do you believe that money can bring you happiness?
According to a post shared by Go Bank Rates, there is actually a certain amount of money that you need to live a happy life.
In the City of Brotherly Love, we know the cost of living is not cheap and the taxes that are taken from your check each month are ridiculous. So how much money does it take to be happy?
Here is the big reveal. Go Bank Rates advised that if you want to live happily and financially stress free, you will need an average of $ 82,439. In fact, it is the necessary income for those who are homeowners.
If you rent, you’ll need to earn even more money, averaging $ 92,639.
Interestingly, if you are hiring you have to earn more money to be happy.
Things get even more interesting than that.
According to these numbers, many people are probably not at all satisfied because the median income in the City of Brotherly Love is $ 40,649.
It’s not even half the “happy” income.
In order for some people to get this “happy” income, they would have to have multiple jobs and who really wants to do that? Probably no one.
To make yourself feel a little better, if you want to live happily in New York City, you need to earn $ 128,552 per year and the median income is currently $ 57,782. Ouch!
