Which area rental is $800-$1000 per month for a small apartment? California? But wait, California minimum wage is more than $7. Lol.
You have never been to USA, have you? Each state has different sales tax and minimum wage bracket depending on the cost of living.

I’ve never worked in America but I would assume like anywhere else in the world, sharing an apartment is still possible right? So even on minimum wage even if an apartment cost $800-$1000 sharing between 2-3 people should make it still affordable. Not sure what’s the maximum allowed capacity if those apartments tho .

lmao dodging my questionlet me get this straight since you seem to still missing the point, are you suggesting that humans should survive on min wages instead of having a better life being paid more?
I don’t think he is suggesting that, his point is quite simple actually, when you are already jobless and have ZERO income, why not just take a minimum wage job to have at least a bit of income until things get better.

what are you even trying to feed into my mouth?
my primary argument has always been increasing the min wage helps the people to live better. your argument however seems to revolve around
1. americans are too lazy therefore dont need more money
2. americans are overpaid therefore dont need more money
3. theres other short term measures like food stamps to help therefore dont need give them more moneyif americans are overpaid then why are there still poverty in the US and people going broke? you see the illogical part youre going at?
hell put yourself into the shoes of their new grads from highschool, starting out with min wage roles or you go to college/uni for better jobs. then ended up with student debt before even getting a job. dont pick those who can still live with pama foundation, but the real poor ones struggling to put food in their table.
jesus youre beating around the bush so hard
On the bolded again I’ve never lived or worked there but generally from what I observed from westerners, a lot of people are constantly broke because they live way beyond their means and spend unnecessarily. Perhaps same case in America?
