Working a full time job at the minimum wage is not enough to cover basic living expenses.
According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, it would take an hourly pay of $18.92 in order for someone working 40 hours per week, 52 weeks per year to be able to afford a two-bedroom rental home without spending more than 30% of their income on housing costs.
This number has increased by 5% since 2013 and is likely still growing with no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
