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.

The liberal media has been manufacturing crises ad-infinitum to divert the public’s attention away from the Trump administration’s tremendous achievements and the Democratic establishment’s corruption, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh warns. While Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report proves the FBI colluded with the Hillary campaign to exonerate her in the email investigation, Democrats are bombarding Americans with fabricated propaganda about Trump’s “heartless” immigration policy, which consists of the president enforcing the already established laws, Limbaugh explained Tuesday. “We are smack dab in the middle of another manufactured media crisis about the supposed ‘Donald Trump, that purposely, wontedly,

Tuesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” host Jake Tapper said President Donald Trump’s tweet saying that Democrats wanted illegal immigrants “no matter how bad they may be” to come to the United States was part of his “embrace of the politics of fear and division.” (Tweet) Discussing Senate Republicans addressing family separation with legislation, Tapper said, “That that would theoretically override the new Trump administration zero-tolerance policy that took effect in the spring prompting criminal prosecution of every single person apprehended at the border which has resulted in thousands of children being taken from their parents complete with heartbreaking images and

The Time I Got Punished for Hate Speech

It´s been quite a week for me already, because I was thrown in jail and released 24 hours later. I had no counsel, no Miranda rights, and no chance for an early release. However, this wasn´t a literal jail. It reaches farther into society than the place people go when they break our criminal laws. This was Facebook jail. I´ve used Facebook since 2009, and despite my sometimes heated political rhetoric and, admittedly, outright troll-baiting, this was the first time I was censored and banned. The alleged offense? Hate speech. Yes, that vague and often indefinable term that nevertheless causes

The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration’s decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border. Lost in the debate is any acknowledgement that President Obama’s administration also used detention facilities. Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating families that arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults. The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process.

Former House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Breitbart News Daily on Tuesday that the Paul Ryan amnesty bill is inconsistent with the mandate of the 2016 election for Donald Trump’s promised border wall and reform immigration. The Donald Trump administration has faced increasing leftist and establishment attacks over their strict border enforcement policies, in which all illegal border-crossers are detained and charged with crimes, while their children are moved to shelters operated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Officials hope that the strict enforcement will serve as a deterrent

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “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.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report.

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of
