Lmfao. No. No 50,000. No internet in stix. No jobs in stix. Also need car. You do not live on minimum wage.
I live in "stix"... the nearest town to me is 20 miles away, and it has a population of 2000. Population density out here is 14 / sq. mi. The nearest city is 50 miles east of me.
I have Internet (I recently got 14mbps DSL, and still have 25mbps Satellite Internet as backup to it.) I work remotely most days, but the hour-long commute on the days I do go (downtown PDX) in is actually faster (and way more pleasant) than the commute of some of my co-workers who live in some PDX 'burbs.
A car? Hell, my commuter vehicle, a cheap-but-damned-reliable 2000-ish vintage minivan, cost me a mere $2,500. I do not live on minimum wage, but once the house/land is paid off (10 years hence - I'm paying it down fast/early), I could *very* easily do so.
My neighbors? Many of them live and work at astoundingly low income (a substantial portion on a fixed retirement income), and do just fine.
