BTW anyone 'earning' minimum wage is automatically dependent in some form or another on their families.

Does that need to be true?

I recently looked at a retirement community that had several studio floor plans of less than 400 square feet. Facility-provided meals, although apartments did have small kitchens (smallest studio only kitchenette). Heating, A/C, basic cable, and all utilities except phone included. Scheduled transportation.

Why limit such facilities to those in retirement (or college)?

What cost per month could be achieved for room and board?

And we have "senior group homes" available as well. Why limit that concept to those in retirement, or in need of assisted living? In most of those homes, they have about 6 resident rooms, with a couple providing the meals and other services.

I suppose similar to the old "boarding houses"...

Hmmm. That brings to mind a line from the movie "In the Good Old Summertime":

"I was living in a boarding house back then, along with other young hopefuls...".
