Being 21 I can't recall when anyone was even close to living on there own at our current "$5.15 an hour". How much realistically would one have to
make to survive on there own? I know there are many contributing factors, so lets take this scenario.
Single, no ex-wife,kids etc.
$400 in rent + utilies (water, electric, trash) /a month
A cheap car payment ($120??) /a month
insurance for car / a month
cost of living (eating cheap)
I'm guessing at least $7.00 an hour, what do you figure? I'm talking basic living.
