When I was in grad school, my wife worked at Barnes & Noble, and half her

co-workers either had PhDs, or were completing PhD programs. Earning minimum wage. Because there were so many people who wanted to live in Cville, it was that, or McDonald's.

And that was over 2 decades ago, when the home prices were actually modest and there were not the same amenities as there are now. I can't imagine what the competition for jobs is like now. I have put my hat in the ring for a handful of jobs at UVA over the years but couldn't afford to do it now, unless I viewed it as almost pro bono work.
