What is a livable wage in Colorado?
Depending on whom you ask, a livable wage in the Denver-metro area is anywhere between $17.40 an hour to $32.86 for one person. Add in a child and wages needed to survive could be nearly double. There are also a lot of caveats with the numbers -- amounts are based on pre-pandemic data is a big one. Economists say a living wage is the income needed to pay for life's essentials (housing, food, medical insurance, child care, internet, etc.) but that wage depends on where a person lives,  family size and year.
