MIT STUDY: WAYNE COUNTY FAMILY OF 4 NEEDS $27.75 HOURLY

(Wayne County, IN)--Researchers at MIT have examined living wages across the country on a county-by-county basis, and here’s what they’ve found for Wayne County.  A living wage is the amount of money someone must earn to actually support a family and is always higher than the minimum wage.  MIT says that a married Wayne County couple with two children must earn a combined $27.75 an hour to make ends meet.  A single adult with one child would have to earn $20.50 an hour.  They say a Wayne County family of four will incur about $58,000 in expenses annually.
