What does it cost fo live?

We've known for some time that the North East States have the highest cost of living when compared with the rest of the country.  This morning I came across this simple graphic illustrating that high cost.  Consider first that each adult works to live.  By live I mean we must pay for housing, food, utilities, clothing, transportation, education, and if possible our enjoyment.  Too many adults these past few years have been forced to work part-time jobs to pay for those costs.  Many others work a two to three part-time jobs because they cannot secure full-time employment. One night I went to my local dollar store to pick up batteries, striking up a conversation with the clerk, I discovered that she works three jobs and was beginning another that week.  This greatly bothered me.  According to this graphic a person/household must work 96 minimum wage hours to pay for the average rent for and apartment in Rhode Island.

Graphic was originally published on Man Vs. Debt Facebook page.

Here again, as in so many other ways, we see the Holy Father’s desire to encourage us to live for Jesus and to further the mission of the Church.
