Minimum wage is just a starting point for teenagers and people just entering the workforce or the retired as a hobby, it is NOT designed as a career choice.

If you are still getting paid by the hour or getting paid for the amount of "time" you have to put into something then this is the least efficient method of earning as you are limited by the amount of hours you are physically capable of working.

get it?

Nobody that wants to accumulate semi-serious wealth does it by being paid for their "time".

How much you wanna bet Brief works for the government? He's here 24 hours a day. So in between porn surfing and collecting his equal opportunity government work-for-welafre check he spends his workday here telling you how stupid and lazy you are. That or he doesn't work at all.

I'm a betting man. I'd put 20 on that even up.

I agree, although sometimes financial or other restrictions require you to have one.

If you can at all AVOID it, of course, do.

If you CAN'T, and absolutely MUST get a roommate, DO NOT ROOM WITH A BEST FRIEND, unless you've already lived together. I've seen more friendships torn apart by becoming roommates than anything else, except maybe money.

How Many Minimum Wage Hours Does It Take To Afford A Two-Bedroom Apartment In Your State?

Washington: 80 Hours - TWICE as much a Full Time
Oregon: 71 Hours
California: 130 Hours
Idaho: 71 Hours
Nevada: 92 Hours
Utah: 77 Hours
Arizona: 85 Hours


New Hampshire: 106 Hours -

Connecticut: 114 Hours


NEW YORK: 136 HOURS

MARYLAND: 137 HOURS

NEW JERSEY: 138 HOURS - 98 HOURS over FULL TIME


What part of this are you Teabilly NOT getting?!

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.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1271534




I agree entirely.

In the mid 90s, no one really cared what minimum wage was, because if you were an able adult, even with little experience, you could fetch a decent job for 10-15 bucks an hour, no prob.


After around 2007, that has changed DRASTICALLY. I know more recent college grads working close to minimum wage than EVER before.

And you know what? Even the people I know working 10-15dllars/hr right now, they don't have even CLOSE to the same purchasing power as 10-15dollars/hr got you in the mid 90s.




THAT is why they are raising minimum wage. Not only can no one really survive on minimum wage, but nowadays, even being SINGLE, its hard to survive on 9-12dollars/hr.

If you are like me, and have a family to support, good luck surviving on 10-15anhour, PERIOD.

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.
