I meant it in the context that to survive in the US meaning rent/mortgage, buy a car, good food, health coverage etc., that's the minimum you will need per household to get by...You are crazy! That is $60k per year. Not even a delusional socialist country could maintain that. You would have unbelievable unemployment and small businesses would shut their doors by the droves. I can hire very good new engineering (mechanical, electrical, software), physics, math grads (with BS degree and intern experience) for 60-75k per year. There is a big difference between that job and a minimum wage job. Btw, if a person learns a skill or trade with demand then $5k+ per month is very realistic.
If i missed that this is a joke...then joke is on me. Apologies.
