With recent talk of raising the minimum wage and living wages, we take a look at exactly how much it costs to support two adults and a child in Texas and Oklahoma.

Lately we've covered things like how many hours you'd have to work at minimum wage to afford a one-bedroom apartment, how much Millennials make in each state, and how much $100 will get you.  But now, we look at the families and exactly what it takes to support a family consisting of two adults and one child today.

The career website Zippia compiled the living wages of every state using MIT's  Living Wage Calculator.  Unsurprisingly, states like California, New York, and Hawaii, which topped other lists we covered, are among the most expensive states to live in.  Texas showed up around the middle of the list, and Oklahoma near the bottom.
