$722 a month? Where's that?

Regarding "Study: Minimum wage doesn't cut it" (Oct. 17, Page A-12): The story couldn't be more right. People are living paycheck to paycheck and are only a flat tire away from being homeless or close to it. However, your study shows that the average housing and utilities cost is $722 per month. Please tell me where I can live in Stanislaus County for $722, including my rent and utilities? Look in the paper and you will hardly find any rent this cheap, let alone with utilities and electricity included.
