    Sure if only to help keep up with the inflation that would result.

    No way I would stop working. As crazy as it sounds I like what I do, and I make a lot more than $25,000 a year doing it. If I was home everyday trying to find things to do my wife would kill me. I drive her crazy as it is on weekends when the weather sucks and I can't be outside.

    Move to someplace that actually pays a living wage, most major cities do. There are exceptions of course.

    From your own link: Average wage in the U.S. lowers to $39, 269 that isn't 27K. I was off in my estimation by 10K. I'll accept that as manual calculations.

    Read further down

    More telling, the median wage fell by the same ratio, dropping to $26,261. Do the math. This works out to only $505 a week or less for half of all workers in the U.S.

    The median income is more reflective as it generally excludes excessive outliers

    .


    Major cities cost much more to live in, and not everyone can abide city living conditions.

    They also pay higher wages to correct for that higher cost of living.
