That's how it was when I was growing up as a starving student during the tail end of the New Deal era.
My pickup truck was an old beater, my apartment was maybe 120 square feet if that, with a tiny bathroom and a kitchenette built into one wall with a two burner stove and fridge combo, and I had no luxuries whatsoever, but I could eat and put gas in my beater and pay my $100 a month rent thanks to my minimum wage dishwasher job.

It was "enough" to get by and I was able to better my circumstances and move up the ladder.
