Unaffordable Housing

I just ran across this rather stunning analysis of housing vs. minimum wage.  An appropriate minimum wage to provide a two-bedroom apartment in the US (on average) would be  $15.78.

"81% of American family renters live in counties where two full-time minimum-wage workers will be unable to afford a two-bedroom apartment."
