Based on this, we assumed 50% of tenants would be working at the federal minimum wage. 2 For program staff participating in interviews, the estimate uses the median hourly wages of selected occupations (classified by Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes) was sourced from the Occupational Employment Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
