Sacramento : Job to Rent ratio

One place I have looked at repeatedly is Sacramento, CA.

So here is an example of what I found recently.

Here is one job with Premier Healthcare Services for $15/hourly ( i copied it below too)

Here is an ad for an apartment for $1150 ( i copied it below)

Now here is the really dry stuff ...
The math...

80 hrs x 15.00 equals $1200 gross tax single person claiming 1 is about 20% so they take home $936 every two weeks.
Their monthly net income is $1872.

Now their rent is $1150 we hope so each paycheck they have to take out at least $625 to pay for rent and utilities.
That leaves them with ....$311 to spare.

Let's have this person take public transit so $110.00 they have to purchase either with one check or the other leaving one check with just $201 dollars.

Now even I can shop with the best of them so the average Grocery Outlet bill just a bit over $40 ...leaving with just $161. till the next pay day. Remember that is just 10 business days away.

Let's say there is one night to go out ..dinner for two $55 now $106 dollars.

what about savings let's put 10% in $32 so $74 remain not a lot but a little in the bank is better.
Unless they have a pet. That $74 is spent on food and flea protection alone and its not a big bag of pet food.

If they have a car and an average commute of 15 miles that remaining $161 dollars is spent quickly very quickly.

This is just one example and one thing I did not find...was a rental agency that did not ask for double to triple the rent income so for the $1150 the person has to earn nearly $4000 a month but as our example of the magical $15 shows the person only earns barely twice as much in gross wages not net. agency I would hope working for a home care program they would provide health insurance otherwise that dents the budget more than the actual rent.

So when you are looking for a job ....sometimes look at the rental market first.
