Why help?????

"Nowhere in the United States can a minimum-wage worker afford a two-bedroom
apartment at Fair Market Rent, based on the generally accepted affordability standard of paying no more than 30% of income for housing. To afford FMR on a two-bedroom housing unit, one would have to earn $14.44 per hour in Detroit."
