Am I reading this right where it says 1 adult can get by on about $37k "living wage"?

That's a far cry from what I see people here demanding almost daily

A big caveat here really should be "1 healthy adult".

I'm sure many people would add many other caveats on this amount to help justify their lifestyle and choices as well.

They would need a rent for $1000 or less. New Haven, West Haven, and Waterbury have cheap options in New Haven County, but even then it's limited.
