In 2010, one in five American adults worked for poverty-level wages, 4.4 million of whom earned wages at or below the federal minimum. The infographic above, from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, makes painfully clear just how hard it is to make ends meet on these wages. Want a modest two-bedroom apartment in New York state for the standard 30 percent of your income? You're going to have to toil at a minimum-wage job for 136 hours a week. This makes clear why there isn't a mass movement to raise the minimum wage—people are too busy working their asses off.
