# As of January, 2019, the average cost of rent for OKC is \$906/month. Rent is generally 1/4 of your monthly take-home pay. So, you would need to make \$3,624/month (if paying all bills by yourself) in order to afford the cost of living, i.e. food, clothing, shelter, etc. If you work 40 hours per week, that means you need to make \$22.65/hr to meet your basic financial needs. Based on this calculation, do most people make a living wage?

Remember, you must also cite all images used on the slide in which the image appears.

The OCCC Library has a database of images and provides the citation.

ImageQuest

The citation of the image needs to be on the same slide as that image, using an acceptable formatting style, i.e. APA, MLA, or Chicago
