That's why the guy can fill the job.
$12 an hour today is poverty wages.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1235825

$12 x 40 hours per week = $480 x 52 weeks = $24,960

Deduct FICA, State, Federal, Insurance, Soc Security, etc

What's left?

Then look at todays living expenses.

Here gas is approximately $4.25 a gallon, almost the same price as a gallon of milk and/or a loaf of bread. Add car insurance, electric, water, property taxes, phone, rent or house payment - $24,960 minus taxes and deductions isn't much to live on in todays economy.
