What is a living wage?
According to Poverty in America, a family of four living in Cuyahoga County, Ohio needs to work full-time, earning $17.62 per hour, to support their family.
That’s just over $3,054 a month gross pay.
Subtract food and housing expenses – $1,448
Subtract transportation costs – $736
And non-categorized costs – $173
Don’t forget about taxes! – $363
Leaving the family with just $334 for medical expenses, child care and emergencies.
At $36,659 annual income, the family does not qualify for Medicaid, and likely could not afford a marketplace plan.
North Coast Health continues to stand in the gap for these families.
