The S.F. Department of Public Health released a map that shows just how many full-time minimum wage jobs you'd need to rent a 2BR in San Francisco at fair market rates (FMR). The numbers aren't pretty and certainly not conducive to a city once known as a sanctuary for those trying to escape the horrors of Whatever, Iowa. Or worse.
"In the Mission, for example, it would take 5.5 jobs to pay the current market rate for an apartment," notes Tim Redmond. The numbers get more depressing in Civic Center, SoMa, and North Beach, just to name a few noted neighborhoods.
Check out the interactive map here and hover over any given neighborhood to see the gap between the income needed to rent a two bedroom apartment and the median income of residents in that area.
