How much has your income increased or decreased since 2006? Maybe you should have moved to make more cash. According to the Q2 2012 results from The PayScale Index, if you were living in Houston, Seattle or Dallas, you might be a little richer right now.
Every quarter, online salary database PayScale.com releases a quarterly wrap up of wage trends for full-time, private-industry workers in the U.S. They pay special attention to major metros, like Boston and New York. See their rankings.
