Where I live min wage is $8/hr. Rent for a one bedroom in a shady area of town is $900 a month. Soo after taxes a single person would be able to pay rent but that is all. Heaven forbid if that person is a single mom (which was not her fault as in husband died,all of a sudden left, etc). I feel min wage is fine... BUT rent prices are ridiculous. I feel rent prices should be More realistic. A single person should be able to afford a one bedroom apartment.
What do you think?
