There is a man in Detroit who walks a total of 21 miles a day to work.
He has never missed a day.
He is never late.

He makes 10.50 an hour.

Depends on many, many factors.

What part of the nation will you live in, and how urbanized is it? Cost of living is key here. Are the residents of the area affluent or very poor? If affluent, the price of everything is inflated. Will you have to pay state income tax, and/or sales tax? Is there public transportation or will you need a car?

If needed, do you have enough money to move?

Do you have to pay rent, or do you live with your parents? Do you have outstanding debt (credit card, student loans, child support)? Are you single, married, married with children? Do other members of your household earn income?

I wouldn't try living on $16.50 an hour in New York City, but you'd be living quite well in rural Arkansas on that amount.

No. Just because you ignorantly label people who disagree with you as liberal doesn't make someone so.

Haha! Don't know what your gender is but either you are a Woman or a Male Feminist most likely. Most MGTOW/MRA guys are killing it in their Careers, making a good amount of money and have great standings in society. IF those aren't "great genes" then I don't know what is.

Hopefully we can get ALL of the decent guys in America to "go their own way" and the only ones left for American Women to pick from will be the thugs and deadbeats, you know the ones that you guys said in high school had "swag".

Welp, you guys will be happy to have your thugs and deadbeats with "swag" sleeping on your couch all day, eating up your fruit snacks, drinking up your Juicy Juice, and complaining that you didn't upgrade to the Comcast Premium Cable Package........while us MGTOW/MRA guys will take our time, energy, FINANCIAL RESOURCES, wisdom, knowledge and love-making to Foreign Women

Be careful...you sound like you're about to become a promoter of eugenics (or dysgenics - I can't tell which)!

He sounds like an irrational person that uses extreme examples to extrapolate to a made up average.

Lol, how many threads and topics do I have to break down for you that my stances aren't extreme? I have provided countless forms of data, you are just a far left Liberal that refuses to accept the reality OR you are ticked off that the "veil has been broken" and people are waking up OUT of the Matrix.

I'm actual a conservative, vote that way nearly all the time. That's where your bs starts to breakdown but there are many other examples

The OP is in Canada. $16.50/hour isn't as much money there.
