MIT student Cassandria Campbell is passing out these postcards as part of her urban planning masters thesis on how Boston residents living near the poverty line make household financial decisions.
This is the question on her post card:
The City of Boston has set the living wage at $13.02 per hour, sufficient for a family of four to survive at the poverty line. Ten percent of Boston residents who support families earn less than this wage. How would you support your family on an income of $13 per hour or less?
CoLab Radio will send you some cards to distribute in your community if you wish. Email Cassandria at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
