In the popular consciousness, the idea persists that full-time work usually comes with at least a bare minimum of comfort and even a bit of disposable income. For millions of American workers, however, even the former is often out of reach, and wages must be spent near-exclusively on life’s necessities. Chief among those is housing: usually people’s largest expense and about the most rudimentary need there is. The answer, then, to the question of what full-time work gets you these days is bleak: As the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s new report “Out of Reach” explains, it’s now quite literally impossible for all but a very few working full-time for forty hours a week to afford even a modest one-bedroom apartment. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2021/07/minimum-wage-affordable-housing-full-time-working-class Follow Kyle on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/kylekulinski #KyleKulinski #SecularTalk #MinimumWage
