How Much Do You Need To Make To Afford A Two-Bedroom Rental In The U.S.?

The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.

There's nowhere in the U.S. where a full-time worker earning minimum wage could afford a two-bedroom rental apartment.

This is according to a new study released by the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

In fact, workers need to make on average of $22.10 per hour to afford a modest two-bedroom.

Three of the five metropolitan areas with the highest housing wages are in California, reports Lifehacker.
