What is the poverty level for a 1st tier city for only 1 person?The poverty level in a 1st tier US city for a family of 4 is $117,400.00 gross. Someone earning that does not have their own home unless its inherited or they bought in 1975. Sooo no tax breaks.
This means take home is about $5700/month
Avg rent 1st tier city 3br/2ba is 3,400.00
now $2300.00 left for food for 4, automobiles, gas, utilities, clothing, trash, 401k, medical, cable tv, internet, cell phones.
Yeah I'm reality based. If you move to a 3rd tier city your income drops 35%.
If you have a family most likely you will not be depressed that women only date chads
