Re: I'm a US taxpayer...
Federal minimum wage is $7.25/hr. IF you can get a full-time (40 hr/wk) job, that's $209/wk before taxes. At 4.3 weeks/month, that's $1247/mo., pre-tax.
The median rent for a 1-bedroom apartment in my state is about $1850/mo.
Someone working for the federal minimum wage in my state would -- quite literally! -- need to work TWO full-time jobs to rent an average 1-bedroom and still manage to eat, and such like.
...and, somehow, my being able to do simple arithmetic means -- according to you -- that I'm some sort of Nazi(!). </eyeroll>
