I came across this researching for my paper and I found it so interesting so I thought I would share. You cant see Hawaii so i'll quote the article for you: "For example, in Hawaii, the most expensive state, a person needs to make $31.68 an hour to afford a two-bedroom apartment. (An apartment is considered affordable if rent and utilities cost under 30 percent of a person's income.) For someone making minimum wage, that would mean working 175 hours -- which isn't even possible (since there are only 168 hours in a week)." And just so you all know, the most affordable isn't even under 50 hours, its 55 and its not a state, its Puerto Rico.
