In an otherwise slow news day in this blawg's focal area, I found this interesting study:
California cities with best wage growth (nationwide):
(4) Santa Cruz
(6) San Luis Obispo
(10) San Francisco-Oakland.
California cities with worst wage growth:
(6) San Bernardino
This is an interesting study, but it would be interesting to see, assuming that inflation is otherwise equal nationwide, whether these wage trends beat the real estate market.
