The minimum wage earners doubled their buying power by going from 40 hours per week to 80 hours per week! Who would have ever thought of it like what a good deal! 8o hour weeks is what it takes in my state of Washington to afford a two bedroom apartment... Can you afford a two-bedroom unit on minimum wage? | Nooga.com ...but in some other states one would need to work more than 80 hours to afford a two bedroom apartment. Taxes & mega sized government are bankrupting Americans. Wally World is getting a lot of strange 'addresses' in their parking lots like WJF-629 etc. The pickups with campers in their beds seems to be getting more & more popular across Wally World America... at least until fuel hits the 8.00$ to 10.00$ range per gallon! Then it's down to tents & roller skates for quality living & commuting! BIG GOVERNMENT... DON'T LOSE HOPE WITHOUT IT!!!
