Top Wage-Required Rents in NJ

Check out a list that ranks the counties in New Jersey based on how much a resident would need to earn in order to afford renting a decent one bedroom apartment.

The Washington Post recently ranked counties across the country in terms of how much residents need to make in order to afford a one-bedroom rental. See the NJ results above.

I like those white tents on the streets in Hudson County in the above picture. Perhaps if these tents were set up on the Seaside beaches around the newly rebuilt boardwalk, visitors would have somewhere to stay until the homes they used to rent are rebuild.

NJ and its legalized extortion racket! These salaries can only get you a one bedroom despite the fact you might have children to feed and other extortion bills to pay! This is sickening! Eventually NJ will only be for the rich and the poor will be driven out with guns and pitch forks!

Why blame it all on the schools.....What about the cost of roads , bridges, garbage( polution control and inspection, remember the cancer hot spots from that corproation dumping poison into the water) how much does it cost local gov't to make sure the Nuclear plant, which is way past retirement age , doesn't go sour and turn Ocean and Monmouth counties and the rest of south Jersey into an uninhabitabe zone for the next 5000 yrs or is it 50,000......, water , police , fire , the cost of flood and storm damage is increasing for sure, because the ice caps are melting even though we use outdated nuclear and natural gas the Mid-west is dumping millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere speeding up climate change and sea level rise that will turn all of the Jersey shore and pine barrens into one big swamp in less than a hundred yrs......Smile and be happy your living in the best of times and the worst.
