Actually, the minimum wage in the USA, can vary greatly from state to state.
In the state I live in, Tennessee, there is no minimum wage. Unless it's been changed and I don't know it,
which is very possible.
The real question is, cost of living. If a job pays you $100,000 a year and the average mortgage payment
is $100,000 a year, then it might not be such a great place to live.
When thinking about the USA, as a norm, employment in the Southern states can often be harder to get
a job in addition, the jobs are usually lower wage. Whereas if you go to the Northern states in the USA, you'll
usually find a higher pay scale and higher chances of getting work.
Just GUESSING I'd say the average person in the USA that does not have some sort of professional skills job,
probably takes home approximately $300 per week give or take some dollars dependent upon the job.
The pay scale in the USA, varies HUGELY depending on the persons location, experience, job skills, type of
job/profession, and of course education.
