Ohio: Minimum Wage Needed for Rent


#41 Ohio

In Ohio, the Fair Market Rent (FMR) for a two-bedroom apartment is $780. In order to afford this level of rent and utilities — without paying more than 30% of income on
housing — a household must earn $2,600 monthly or $31,194 annually. Assuming a 40-hour work week, 52 weeks per year, this level of income translates into an hourly Housing Wage of: $15.00
