94-hour workweek required at minimum wage to afford 2-bedroom apartment in Utah

June 21, 2017View for printing

Before Larry Darden moved out in early 2016, he "was afraid to go to sleep at night" in his downtown Salt Lake apartment.

Roaches infested the place. There were attempted break-ins. Darden never felt comfortable or secure.

"It was very, very unsafe at my last address," Darden says.

Despite the deplorable conditions, Darden was hundreds of dollars per month short of being able to consistently afford his apartment.
