You Need the Maximum Amount of Minimum Wage to Afford Rent

The National Low Income Housing Commission paints a rather bleak picture of housing affordability in the United States. The state which requires the least amount of hours at minimum wage in order to afford housing is a tie between West Virginia and Arkansas at 63 hours. That's just over a week and a half of a 40-hour work week. Sorry kids, looks like that fancy dinner at Applebees will have to wait until next month.
