Minimum wage is below average

In the Nov. 2 editorial “On Team Trump, it’s welfare for the wealthy, contempt for US workers,” you wrote that someone making the minimum wage would have only $300 a month left after paying for an average apartment.

I don’t remember living in an average apartment when I was starting my career.That would be living high on the hog.

If minimum-wage workers are living in average apartments, who’s living in the below-average ones?
