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.

President Donald Trump wants to merge the federal departments of Labor and Education in what would be the biggest bureaucratic shake-up in recent history, published reports said Wednesday. Budget director Mick Mulvaney has been working on the proposed consolidation — which would need congressional approval — for more than a year, sources told Politico. The combined agency would be called the Department of Education and the Workforce, Education Week reported. This proposal would face an uphill political battle. Republicans have been seeking to eliminate the Department of Education for years without much success.The last major cabinet-level agency shuffle happened nearly

President Donald Trump reassured supporters of his tough immigration policies that he would continue enforcing the border, after signing an executive order to stop families of illegal immigrants from being separated at the border. “We are going to keep families together, but the border is going to be just as tough as it’s been,” he said during a rally in Duluth, Minnesota on Wednesday night. He accused Democrats of ignoring the impact of “uncontrolled” immigration into communities, citing the burden on schools and hospitals. “Democrats put illegal immigrants before they put American citizens.

The rally was previously planned for the DECC Arena, reported Fox News. President Trump is expected to endorse House candidate Peter Stauber for the state’s 8th district. President Trump taunted a protester as he was forcibly removed from the rally. “So we have a single protester. Goodbye darling,” Trump said as the crowd booed. “He’s going home to his mom. Say hello to mommy,” President Trump said as the crowd erupted into cheers.

Former President Barack Obama used World Refugee Day to criticize President Donald Trump´s policy of separating migrant children and families. While he did not mention Trump by name, Obama did ask in a Facebook post if the United States was a country that ´accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents´ arms, or are we a nation that values families.´ He posted his soliloquy before Trump signed an executive order reversing his policy of separating migrant children from their families. ´To watch those families broken apart in real time puts to us a very simple question: are we a

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.

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

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. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

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
