The current minimum wage is not enough at $7.25 to afford food and shelter for a full family. The average cost of living in the u.s. for a family of four is around $48,000. With two able working adults getting paid the minimum wage (7.25) in a year makes about $12,000 a year (these rates are for a family of four and two working adults in the u.s.)
