It now takes a $22.10 hourly wage
to afford the typical modest two-
bedroom rental

Washington Examiner, by Joseph Lawler

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/13/2018 12:52:38 PM

An hourly wage of $22.10 is now what´s needed to afford a typical, modest two-bedroom rental nationwide, according to a new report released Wednesday, and most renters don’t earn nearly that much. In its report, the National Low Income Housing Coalition estimated that the typical renter instead earns just $16.88, meaning that for most the average “affordable” rental housing, as defined by the government, is not within financial reach. The new estimate of $22.10 is up almost $1 from the $21.21 estimate a year earlier. In many big cities, the gap between what people earn and what would be needed

Millennials in San Francisco are renting a room in a sort of modern day boarding house (mostly w/o private bath, & w/o meals) for ~1400-2400 per month, and the waiting list is thousands of people long for just a few existing places. This is liberal Utopia.

Two points. In my career as a high school business teacher, I introduced MS Excel with a household budget demonstration. I tried to be realistic, and emphasize an un-lavish lifestyle. The estimate the kids and I came up with was about $17 an hour to afford a 2-bedroom apartment. And about $11 or $12 an hour with a roommate. I always asked the kids if they would drag just anyone off the street and pay them $17 an hour. They always said, no.

Hit submit too fast. Second point, $22 an hour is approximately $42,000 a year. That’s probably close to an average 1st year teacher salary.

I guess that $15 per hour minimum wage isn´t working in most places. Let´s try $25 for a burger flipper next time around and see what happens.

A nice apartment has always been out of the range of beginning low-skilled workers. You do what you have to do until you get established.

I had an apartment and a new Porsche in the Washington DC area right out of computer school and I could still do that today based on current prices and wages. Bottom line, get a useful education in a skill that is in demand. African History and Womyn´s Studies majors need not apply.

#4 Ask yourself why they want to do that.
They can get a 3 bedroom house with a yard just a few miles away for $2500-3000 a month,
get 2 room mates and live cheap.
They don´t want to, they want to live in little high priced hovels instead.

I would hardly call it utopia, and wouldn´t want to live that way, but they do, and more of them do than there is space for them to do it in, hence the waiting lists.

Why begrudge them for living as they please, it isn´t harming anyone?

My first two years of working, I either had roommates, or lived in an efficiency apartment. I survived and moved up as I was able to afford better. I lived in apartments for 10 years before I bought my first house (1,100 square feet, three BR, 2 Bathrooms, one-car garage) with an FHA loan. The key is living within your means.

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

During Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd interviewed Rep. Mark Sanford (R), who recently lost renomination for his House seat in South Carolina after President Trump criticized him while endorsing his primary opponent on Twitter. Hoping for an intra-party fight to break out, Todd read aloud a quote from Senator Bob Corker, also a Trump critic, comparing the GOP to a cult. Todd then asked Sanford “would you use that word?” Later in the interview, Todd asked Sanford if he had any plans to run against President Trump in 2020.

On Friday, CNBC’s Jane Wells appeared on a Fox affiliate in Los Angeles, and touted the Trump economy, noting that if things continue to go the way they’re going, the president may well be re-elected in 2020. However, anchor Elex Michaelson and two panel members, Gianno Caldwell and Jessica Levinson, challenged Wells on Trump as it pertains to "racism." Here’s the exchange: WELLS: We do have a trade war; prices will probably go up on a few things. At the same time, U.S. steel is just firing up a defunct plant in the U.S. because the demand for domestic steel is

Mexican soccer supporters appear to have shaken the Earth a little bit Sunday as they celebrated what turned out to be a decisive goal to defeat reigning champion Germany in an opening match of the World Cup.

Rep.

There were large numbers of people coming in. The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet,” the Texas Democrat told CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield on Saturday. According to data from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, nearly 70,000 unaccompanied minors crossed the southern border in fiscal year (FY) 2014—the period between October 1, 2013,

Fewer people are celebrating Father’s Day than ever before, a fact that may have less to do with the nature of the holiday than it does with the nature of American families. A U.S. Census Bureau study found that the percentage of children living in single-parent households increased from 12 percent in 1960 to 31 percent in 2016. During that same timeframe, “the percentage of children living with only their mother nearly tripled.” These numbers are sobering because according to recent studies, kids who lack an engaged father (and so may be less likely to observe Father’s Day) are also

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Gov.

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved?

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed. Anti-gay protesters would line the streets, dressed in black and holding aggressive, defamatory signs, said Robert Franklin, who was also
