One of my favorite past times is wondering how people live.
I know. This sounds voyeuristic and a little creepy, but I am genuinely curious how some people can survive in America making what they make…
Let’s take someone working minimum wage.
In Illinois, that’s 8.25 an hour. Assuming you’re lucky enough to be full time (which is very rare for someone working full time to also be working minimum wage), that’s bringing in a gross of 330. Now, that’s gross (pun entirely intended).
