Is it possible to afford rent working minimum wage?

If you work 40 hours per week at minimum wage...
There isn't a single state where you can afford a one-bedroom Fair Market Rent...
Without spending more than 30% of your income. And since "affordable housing" means spending less then 30% of your income on rent...

There is no such thing as affordable housing for minimum wage workers.

42% of all workers in the United States make less than $15 an hour.
