Can a family of two live off the income of supermarket jobs?

If my girlfriend and I both get jobs at a supermarket such as shoprite, stop&shop, etc where the pay is about 7-10 dollars an hour, would that be enough for us to live a tight but comfortable life? We are looking to rent an apartment and both of us aren't coming from wealthy families so not having all the new and trendy things like smartphones, flat screen tv's and such is not a problem for us. would our combined income cover for necessities such as insurance, rent, bills, food, clothing, transportation? as well as leave us some pocket money

it would be difficult...if you both make 10 an hour..and get 40 hours per week.. that is only about $20k per person per year...not much at all....

It all depends on where you live. I live in the Boston MA area and you would never be able to afford a decent apartment, pay utilities, have a car, etc.

It does depend on where you live but, I seriousley doubt that 2 people earning 7-10 dollars per hour could possibly support themselves.
