    I live in a nice but small studio apt in a modest apt complex. My neighbor told me she was not allowed to rent here until she got another job. So.. full time job that pays $2 per hour above min wage, & 20 hrs/wk at min wage, just for her to be eligible to rent a small apt.

    No wonder so many people are homeless in the USA.

    I make almost exactly the medium wage for Texas. That means half the people in Texas make less than I do.

    I think about that often. That means half of those working, work hard but still struggle. One half of our population!

    So much for the American Dream.
