Base amount of money it costs to live, covering housing expenses, food, entertainment... perhaps leaving a little to save or invest. Proponents of sweatshop labor, and those who acquiesce to the phenomenon, will say that culture and market forces determine what a "living wage" is, i.e., it's OK for a woman in Vietnam to make 10¢/hour. Here's a better rule of thumb: a living wage for you will give you the best idea of what it should be for someone else.

Matt 7:12
