  • Q2
    How does the poverty line relate to the federal minimum wage?
    There is no relation between the two.
    The poverty line is calculated such that a single earner working full time and making minimum wage should be above that line.

  • Q3
    Carol works 40 hours a week and makes minimum wage. She lives alone in a small town in Texas and has very few expenses. Dan also works 40 hours a week and makes minimum wage. He lives downtown in a big city in California. Who do you predict has the better standard of living and why?
    Carol, because even though she doesn't make a lot of money she is likely able to meet her expenses each year.
    Neither one has a better standard of living - they both make the same amount of money each year.
    Dan, because he lives in a city with better services and amenities.
