Cents and Sensibility deals with the cost of living, and the impact on the low wage worker.  The numbers are for one month for a family of four in the Central Louisiana area.  Included are wages for 40 hours at minimum wage (although often workers do not get that many hours), average area rent, utility, and grocery costs for a family of four, and bus fare for 10 rides a week, to and from a job.  Not included are costs for clothing and cleaning/grooming supplies, among other costs, as I could not find any information.  Also included are poverty-level income and SNAP allotment for a family of four.  The quilting lines are not quite straight, and the main color is muddy.
