What can an average American worker afford?

What kind of a lifestyle can an average American worker afford. How often could he go out to eat at restaurants like McDonalds? Where would he live? Suburbs? City centre? Would he be able to live in a walking/public transport distance from work or would he. be forced to rely on a car.

Please describe what it is like to live in America.

    The average income in the US (pre COVID) was $54,000. For a single person in a typical coastal city that's barely enough to live at a decent standard with any financial security. Meanwhile in more inland cities that could be enough to qualify for a mortgage and own a couple of cars. The costs of living are so extremely varied in the US that there isn't really any one answer to your question. But you appear to not be American, so I will tell you that here McDonald's is considered something only kids and poor frequent. Most middle class and up adults in the US wouldn't eat at McDonald's (even if it was free). In the US the more money one has the more concerned they tend to be about their health and McDonald's specifically is considered very bad for you. Oddly enough the US menu for McDonald's is far worse than that of McDonald's in other countries. In Asian countries McDonald's offers non fried fish items, in India they get vegetarian versions. Even in Europe and Australia there are items on the menu that won't doom you to obesity and a heart attack. It's just in the US that McDonald's appears to be trying to kill us.

    Everyone needs a car.     

    Things are changing so fast with the CV pandemic - that's what everyone is talking about.   

    How are they coping and is the news really true?     

    People used to have close contacts, family, and online.     

    Now it's only family and online.
