Los Angeles is Expensive

What's it cost to live okay in LA?

The LA County Federation of Labor has released a document that shows that life in Los Angeles is expensive -- something we've always known.


According to the leaflet "What does it take to live in Los Angeles?" a single person requires an income of $28k to live "modestly" in Los Angeles.

According to Craigslist, however, the $843 rent and utilities for a small apartment underestimates the rent by around $100, unless you're looking for a very small studio with free electricity.


And $1,200 for a 1 or 2 bedroom? Good luck. Maybe in extremely modest parts of South Central LA.
