How do people afford houseing in america? I was looking at the price of rent in ireland to the price of minimum wage and you can still pay?

For food and stuff. You make 1,656.20 per month and rent is about 400 for 1 bedroom or 800 for three bedroom. In california you make about 1,500 for minimum qage or 2,000 and a one bedroom cost 2,200 dollars. How the heck are americans paying for rent? Mind not all woman go to work. So its only one pay check. Like... show more For food and stuff. You make 1,656.20 per month and rent is about 400 for 1 bedroom or 800 for three bedroom.
