Is it really that hard to make a living of a part-time job? Seeing how the situation is in Brazil, I guess that's true there, but one of the years I was living in the capital city of my country I only spent around 400-500€ a month, rent and all living expenses included. And that was the capital city, where prices are inflated a lot. Granted, I didn't have the fanciest apartment, but if I lived in a less centric place, I could definitely do it for less money and in a much better apartment, and I'd still have enough money to save every month. I'd be personally more than happy in that scenario, and all I'd need to get there would be a part-time job.

I said a minimum wage part time job.

You can definitely make a living off of a part time job. I only work part time myself, but I'm not on minimum wage. I think that would be pretty tricky on minimum wage though, unless you had something big going for you (like already owning your own home so no rent/mortgage payments).

One thing for sure, you definitely cannot make a living on a minimum wage full time job in Brazil. Even with double the minimum wage it's still hard.
