Full Timers Who Make Minimum Wage Can't Afford Rent - ANYWHERE


People working full-time minimum wage jobs cannot afford a two-bedroom apartment in any state in the country. That's according to a new report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition. In 93% of counties in the U.S., the same workers can't afford a modest one-bedroom. The report found the average hourly worker currently earns $18.78 per hour, about $6 short of the wage needed to afford a two-bedroom rental. The report concluded that the average minimum wage worker in the U.S. would need to work nearly 97 hours per week to afford the average two-bedroom place.
