At Crossroads we believe in the dignity of work and strive to provide tools that will enable hard working individuals to secure permanent, life-sustaining employment. The living wage for a single person in Loudoun County is $16.84/hour, and skyrockets to $28.76/hour for individuals with one dependent, both a huge leap from the current minimum wage in Virginia which is $7.25/hour. Food for thought as we work to strengthen our community. #jobs #dignity #hope #AffordableHousing #LivingWage
Full-time minimum wage workers cannot afford a two-bedroom rental anywhere in the U.S. and cannot afford a one-bedroom rental in 95% of U.S. counties, according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition's annual "Out of Reach" report.
