j. As of January 2019, the average cost of rent for OKC is $906/month. Rent is generally 1/4 of your monthly take-home pay. So, you would need to make $3,624/month (if paying all bills by yourself) in order to afford the cost of living, i.e. food, clothing, shelter, etc. If you work 40 hours per week, that means you need to make $22.65/hr to meet your basic financial needs. Based on this calculation, do most people make a living wage?
