According to Huffington Post, if you work a full-time job in America making minimum wage, you can’t afford a two-bedroom home.

This report states that comparing minimum wages and housing costs in states across America do not add up. The hourly wage needed for a two-bedroom rental on average across the country is more than double the minimum wage of $7.25.

So how does Illinois compare to the rest of the country? What would you have to make hourly in Illinois to afford a two-bedroom rental home, and what about other states? Check this out:

  • Illinois: $20.87
  • Wisconsin: $16.11
  • Iowa: $14.57
  • Indiana: $15.17
  • California: $30.92

 How about that California wage, wow!
