ARLINGTON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION SHARED PROSPERITY WAGE/SALARY INFORMATION FOR ARLINGTON'S ESSENTIAL LOW WAGE WORKERS According to the MIT living wage calculator (link below table), which tracks very closely to local modeling, the living wage for a single Arlington adult with no children is $22.98 per hour; for a household with 2 working adults and 2 children is $33.18 per hour per working adult and; if one parent is working and the other home with the children, the living wage is $42.99 per hour for the working adult. Living wage is defined as the hourly rate that an individual in a household must earn to support him or herself and their family without outside assistance . In column C, you will find the 2021 starting hourly wages in Arlington for essential positions for our community to function. Column D indicates what the annual salary would be if the position were full-time. However, the vast majority of these jobs are not full time and do not offer benefits. Column E is realtime data of these positions as advertised on August 23, 2022. Note, however, that these are median hourly rates for all positions, not just entry level, so they are naturally higher, but still do not come close to a living wage. Column F reflects what those median advertised wages would translate to IF the positions were actully full time, salaried ones. Occupation Title
