She makes $13/hr, and after adding up all of her bills like rent, electric, water, gas, phone, cable, car insurance, car payment, etc.. she has $200 a month left for food, fuel, clothes, entertainment and all other incidentals. Hardly enough, forget about saving anything. She will never get out of the hole she's in...
BS,she just lives beyond her means and blows money away.Car payment?How about going to an auction and getting a decent vehicle for a couple of G's cash.?Whatever you ppl say,living in the US is much more comfortable for an average person than living in Poland.How about getting unemployement for 2 years?Can you get it in PL?And it's $400/week (MD),so it makes little sense for many to acctually take low paid job.
$13/hr is what, like $1700 take home (not including the rebate check at the end of the year...). Maybe time to cut a bit of that spending?
Exactly.Making $13/h I was taking home $421/week.You won't live in a mansion but it's enough to have a decent living and even put few $$$ aside every month.
The Americans will enjoy high standard of living as long as USD is being accepted worlwide,even though their standard of living is dropping and I don't see the new generation being able to afford "baby boomers" standard.
