Actually your math is off. I assume by multiplying by 40, you mean 40 hours worked per WEEK. since rent is calculated per MONTH. This equation does not work. A more accurate sentence would be "multiply minimum wage by 175 and subtract your rent asshat ".
$5.15/hr x 40hr/wk x 4wk = $824
Assuming 20% total tax that leaves $659.20 to spend on rent, food, insurance, and other expenses.
