Depends. If you're in New York City, definitely not.
If you're in some small town, it may be do-able if you're financially savvy enough. As stated above, you will have programs that are there to assist those who fall under such situations.
it all depends on where you live. real estate where i live is cheap as hell (ohio). you won't be buying a house with those wages but renting may be possible.
$7.50/hr 40 hrs a week=$14400/yr. not gonna bother going into taxes because idk where you live.
you can get a small apartment for $300/month=$3.6k/yr. that's assuming you live in a cheap state.
cheap car that's good on gas would be great. that elio motors car is supposed to come out next year (doubt it ever will rofl) that's like $7k and does 80mpg or something. that'd be a godsend for people on a budget.
food isn't terribly expensive, but you'd be accepted for food stamps without a doubt. even if you didn't apply for them, you could still eat healthy for like 3 bucks a day.
other expenses such as bills and gas are all up to you. idk what you're like so i can't even begin to estimate those.
people always bash on ohio, but right now it's pretty god tier in terms of pricing across the usa. you can pick up a 6+ bed 6+ bath with an indoor pool, bad ass kitchen, wine cellar, lake erie beachfront property in a really good location for under a mil. normally you'd expect a house like that in a good location to be at least 2-3m. hell, an abandoned mansion was just sold for $750k a couple months ago. needed some major repairs but it's a damn nice property.
I did it part time minimum wage, so you should be able to do it being fulltime. It's not fun though, so I'd suggest staying with whoever you're staying with, if possible, until you either finish school or get a better paying job.
Its been said already but most big towns no. Around LA youll be getting about 1600 a month BEFORE taxes but the cost of living youd need to provide could very easily surpass the 1k mark so unless youre insanely smart with shopping for basic necessities itll be tough.
Assuming you work 160 hours a month on minimum wage, you get $1200, which after taxes (NY) is around $840. If you're frugal and know what you're doing, you could probably get away with spending around $160 on food or less, which leaves you with around ~$680.
You'd have to balance that around with bills (electric, gas, internet, water, rent/mortgage, etc). It's doable, depending on location.
