I am sure that this has been brought up somewhere in this board, but, I didn't see it in this thread. With all R&B's talk about needing to cut back, downsize, etc because they only have Randall's city council salary (and whatever Beth is making on dance teaching, which I imagine isn't much) to live on, I imagined that city council was a part time, barely paid job. I googled. https://data.phila.gov/visualizations/employee-salaries Base salary for a Philadelphia City Council member is $130,000. I am sure that is a huge cut from whatever Randall was making in his previous job, but it isn't exactly poverty wage. Or anything close to it.
Of all the unrealities of this show, I don't know why this is the one that bothers me.
