No.  And I'm smart enough to know that minimum wage was never intended to pay bills and raise a family on.

7.75 no I couldn't... Maybe if I just had rent and utilities, but with a car payment and student loans I can't.

I could, we would have no extra money but necessities would be covered. Minimum wage is 7.25$ an hour in Texas, and I'm assuming this would be a full time job.

No because DH makes a lot more than minimum wage and we live accordingly.

In GA I think it is around $7.25. No I couldn't live off that unless I had 2.5 jobs and DH still had his regular pay.

Hell no I couldn't. My car payment is more then my house payment. I would be a broke ass and I think minimum wage is the same here.
