A single person that earn less than 15.00$ an hour in NB. is doomed to crash in dept. Considering that average hours of work is between 30 and 37 hrs a week and where there is no public transportations, like bus, etc. Many other charges they have to pay that is not listed above, like medications, dentist, glasses, heating, Gas, insurance etc etc. Let us be fair, below 15.00$ for 48 hrs a week, a single person is almost starving. Same thing for retired person who only have old age security and a small CPP is not living, he is only surviving, Time as come for the government to really do something to help all working peoples to earn enough for living, Prosperity of a province come with the money workers make. Employers who goes south on vacation for a month and more and pays there employees minimum wages should be ashame, why is it so hard for them to pay a little more? Be honest, everybody have to right to live a descent life.

How much does it cost on average monthly , considering all the expenses and rent to live in Fredericton?
Brad on Mar 26, 2017:
Based on the model above titled "Distribution of expenses" I should be paying 227$ for rent. yet the cheapest apartments are over 3x that. Greedy landlords milking the university students for all they are worth. Rent per month is more like 60%-65% of my wage. this means I can't do anything else but work and eat in this backwards city.
