According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the "average wage per job" in the "New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island" area in 2006 was $60,544. Chicago was $48,420. San Francisco: $61, 031. Boston: $59,095. I'm curious about how representative those figures are for those of you who are working day jobs to support your theatre career. I don't want to know how much you make, but if you would tell me (and feel free to use the Anonymous comment option for this):
1. What city you are in.
2. Whether you are making: Way Less, Somewhat Less, About That Much, a Little More, or a Lot More.
Again, I'm trying to crunch some numbers, so I appreciate your assistance.
