I'm a Telecom worker who has been having a rough time since the first of the year. A few opportunities might open up in the Seattle area for both my wife & myself so I'm trying to get the skinny on what's happening with the economy in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest in general. There were and still are a lot of telecommunications companies in my area. That industry is hurting though. That's why I might be considering a move. I know that the music scene is much better than where I currently live. What quality of living can I expect for a family with two young kids earning a decent income? Are the schools alright? Help!!!
