No, I could not even pay my mortgage with that amount each month.

We live comfortably on half that. We are a family of 3 though.

I can't believe anyone thinks they couldn't  live off that.  Obviously if you are making 500k or some ridiculous number right now, no 40/hr won't cut it for the lifestyle you are accustomed to.  But you sure as fuck could figure it out and get by on that.

We could pay all our bills on $40 dollars an hour, but we would eventually have to downsize as we would not be able to save what we normally do and we would have to skimp on the extras, and I don't like to skimp.
