commented on Humans on Mars by 2025?
This makes me recall a semi-serious cartoon from the 70s, "If they can send a man to the Moon, why don't they send them all there?"

Bailo, let's say that minimum-wage job was $8/hr. (That's much more than some minimum wages in many states and most low-wage workers can't get fulltime, but anyway.) Gross wages would be $1,312; take-home maybe $1,100. Out of that the worker would have to ay rent, food, utilities, bus fare/gas, and all those things you don't worry about.
Assuming the worker didn't get Section 8 (because that benefit has been drastically cut over the years), let's say the worker has about $400 remaining for rent, in -- as you claim -- a clean, sunny, large aartment. In a suburb, yet, nowhere near that worker's job.
Of course I'm doing what no one should do: comment on your idiocy.

Oh great, this is really going to be effective for the already-deserate effort to save unions. Our Local 8 wouldn't make that idiotic move. I hoe that organizer is fired and that's announced in the media.
