I am checking again. Not only are most of the California salaries lower than my agency pays, they are lower than I see other agencies advertising in Phoenix, until this: $45,150 - $58,050 a year.

It is a clinic. Those almost always pay better.

Maricopa Public Schools is offering $58,500. Last year it was more like $48,000, but they are far enough away that I wouldn't say they are in the valley....
I'm curious if these are real salaries (A guaranteed yearly wage) - or something you are calculating based on an hourly rate. It seems the root of your problem is that you haven't been able to even work 1/2 time in your current job / location. So a lower hourly rate at another job but full time hours could put you ahead of the game especially if that new job was a W2 job with benefits.

Sounds like a plan. Guaranteed hours, retirement, medical insurance, paid sick time....
