    So... they'd have to work 18.6 hours a day for 7 days a week?

    Why is a minimum wage maker trying to afford any place on their own let alone a 2 bd apartment?

    Minimum wage was never designed to support a one income family, nor should it. The skills required in most minimum wage jobs are .....well.....minimal.
