Crazy that a lot of jobs actually cost people money.

Even if you make well above minimum wage, you can still be Net Negative from these types of expenses....

Gas, individual meals, child-care, pet-care, car maintenance, (depending where you work) parking, "professional" attire, etc... I think in California the wage to afford a "normal" standard of living is somewhere around $25/hr... well over 3x the minimum wage today
