Hey AC,
The rent is per month, so the hours would be per month also, not per week.

Two or three people working minimum wage jobs could easily share a 2 bedroom apt.

If you're wanting to live like the wealthy while doing a job that any teenager could do, it's not gonna happen.
 Quoting: MuzzleBreak


Fuck, you teatard! LOL

Yes, because people are always saying, "I work 120 to 160 hours a month"!

LOL

It's per week!

Get a clue!

And that is what makes me sad. Because things should be otherwise. We are letting the darkness grow because we have been duped. Our lives are not as they should be. We are allowing the evil to control us. Jesus pointed us in the right direction. The answer to the worlds problem is not in economics, politics or bleeding heart humanitarian movements, it begins with a search withing yourself a search for love and peace and beauty and it takes practice and fervent devotion to reach that place, but it is not beyond us. Jesus gave us a helping hand how many of us are really taking that hand. Before you start I am not a new age idiot or a religious nut. I am a broken man who has had to see things that way because everything around him has crumbleed. It crumbled because I kept asking for the hand but never took because of fear and whatever else. I know I am talking in riddles but that is the only way I express it.

I know the average price to rent an ok place;

not one bug infested in a bad neighborhood is about


800 to 900 dollars a month.

Many people earning minimum wage or even several dollars above can't afford one on their own.

Many in Colorado have to team up and have several room mates to afford to live.

what a load of hypocricisy

I like the people who keep saying that is your foult if you get a minum wage.

is like telling to all those people that provide important basic services which paycheck is kept low by the market that they should not be intitled to have a home, or eat etc


Why people like Brief don't go around and tells simply to the cleaners, waiters etc that they just think they are sub-humans. Obviously sub-humans wich cheapness they can profit every day
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32020839

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23657849


No, it isn't. Where does it say we are entitled to anything? We aren't. These people took these jobs and should be thankful they have them if they didn't educate themselves for anything more. But if you haven't trained for anything above minimum wage then a person shouldn't complain. They could get busy and get themselves trained for something instead of complaining. And Brief never called anyone subhuman.

 Quoting: BRIEF


Adjusted for inflation from 1960 til now minimum wage should be $16/hr.


So what was good for teenagers in 1960 is good as a minimum wage today.

So yes you are correct. But it doesn't change a thing.



I seem to see countries that are raising their wages have higher growth.

Australia, Canada, China.


And countries that have stagnant wages having stagnant growth.

United States, United Kingdom, Germany

And countries that have shrinking wages in recession.

Portugal, Spain, Greece.


Any way you slice it. I'm right.

not right at all.your talking a more than 10 fold increase in pay.apartments in my area chicago have gone up about 8 fold.and areas/countries that are bomming always see an increase in pay.when the economy slows down wages drop.all you crybaby fucks that went to school and are so enlightened should have learned a real skill.there are 1000s of jobs if you got the skills.

I'm not in the US, but oh well. Most apartments around here are about £350 a month, which is £87.50 per week. Minimum wage is £6.19 / hour. That means you have to work about 14 and a half hours to earn enough for a weeks rent.

Its just amazes me how as a general rule humans are unkind and unsympathetic to each other, as if they where independent entities that needed no one and lived in a planet of their one.

People dont make minimum wage because they want?!?! WTF LOL. The Dalai Lama states that all humans have the genuine and legitimate desire to be happy, nobody wants to be sad, or angry, how we go about it is what makes the difference.

So following this train of logic, yes, lack of degree, poor nutrition when children, no access to real education, having to work way before their time given their family needs, abusive families, an alcoholic father that beat the crap out of you, etc, etc, will all have to do with how much money someone makes, ie, causes and conditions.

Who wants to be poor?, nobody :).

Oregon: 71 Hours
California: 130 Hours
Idaho: 71 Hours
Nevada: 92 Hours
Utah: 77 Hours

Are you brainwashed or just dumb?!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18834326


You're implying these people pay their rent weekly. So this is saying (based on $7.25 per hour minimum wage (higher in many states like california) that in Washington they are paying (80 Hrs * $7.25 * 4.33 weeks per month) $2,511.40 for their apartment. I'm guessing you mean they work 80 hours to pay for their monthly rent which means they make $1,255.70 and pay $580 for their rent. That seems legit.

funny that all the tards bitching about minimum wage are likely the same tards that sat by as their pols allowed 15 million illegal immigrants into the country to dilute the workforce. Want better wages? Send the illegals back out of the country and watch US wages go up, up, up. You made this bed, libtards. Now, eat your fucking minimum wage peas!

Libtards? Republicans are just as responsible for the mess of illegals in this country. I'm sorry to break it to you, but Ronald Reagan made the bed. Reagan gave amnesty to illegals back when he was president. Bush continued the mess. Our present republican congress keeps voting against dealing with the illegals problem and sending them back. Wealthy republicans don't want to give up their cheap wage slaves. I'm afraid that this is a wings of the same bird issue.

my mom works 180 hours a month at $65,000 a year

and we still struggle. no luxury's like fruit, or holiday trips. no sweat car nope we have a beat up 03 base civic and our house was built in the 50's that cost $85,000 and is now worth $220,000 now. We dont live in a high cost city we live in a small town of 8,000. The cost of living is just so dam high after mortgage, utility's, we are left with less than 400$ for food and anything else. People that work minimum wage here cant afford to live in an apartment and if they do they are sharing it with 5 other people and still working 2 jobs.

Here in Canada the economy has risen 100% in the last 30 years yet wages have only gone up 13%

once your working paycheck to paycheck its extremely hard to get ahead. why should some of the hardest working people never get to enjoy the fruit's of their labor?

Get a better job you say sure, sure that's an easy lazy answer but some one has to do those jobs right? so they should be payed fairly and to a point that meets our current costs of living or the costs of living need to drop significantly but that wont happen when their are higher payed people willing to pay the cost in tern the rich make the poor suffer because they are willing to pay the price the poor can not afford.
