$600,000 House on Starbucks Pay?
Good luck with that. (California, here I come!)
The transition has been rockier for Kelly Markham, who earned $200,000 in commission in 2005 as a loan officer at an Irvine mortgage brokerage. When commissions dried up, she began looking for another job to support her six-month-old baby and hang on to her $600,000 home.
"I've signed up for work at a temp agency, but all I've gotten is five hours of work in the past four weeks stuffing envelopes in some office," said Markham, 34, as she perused Starbucks job listings online one recent afternoon.
A nice catch by Keith at housingpanic.
