Zillow report: Minimum wage workers need multiple roommates to afford Charlotte rent

CHARLOTTE — Nowadays, it seems as if you’re paying more money for less space.

Recent numbers show that it is becoming increasingly harder to rent an apartment in Charlotte, even with roommates.

According to Zillow, it would take about five roommates, each making the minimum wage, to afford a two-bedroom rental, which is higher than the national average.

The company also says that a regular two-bedroom in Charlotte costs more than $1,500 a month, and with minimum-wage workers only making $7.25 an hour, four roommates would be needed to pay rent.
