Should I apply for a job where I'm paid $25,000 annually?

I just graduated college and I haven't had a job since 2010 and I was a cashier then. I live in a small town and I still live with my mom. I have student loans I have to repay back. The job is a government job where I will be dealing with individuals on probation.

Do you think $25,000 a year is good income? I

I just graduated college and I haven't had a job since 2010 and I was a cashier then. I live in a small town and I still live with my mom. I have student loans I have to repay back. The job is a government job where I will be dealing with individuals on probation.

Do you think $25,000 a year is good income? I really need a job so that I can afford a car since I can't seem to find a better paying job in my town (I live in a small town).

Take the job, at least you get steady income and benefit. Government officials do get load of benefits. Pension, health insurance, etc Yes, $25k annual indeed make sense in a small town. I live in average size town with a population of 200k and I was paid $11/hour working as a tempt straight out of college.
Invictus:
You should take the job if you have been offered already. But it looks like you haven't even applied yet. Do apply anyway but keep on applying elsewhere.
anonimitie:
$25K annually isn't a good income by any measure. That's not to say you have earning power that could get you more.
Eddy:
Keep that job. You will get raises over time. Don't lose that job. All of us are out of a job. We would trade places with you in a heartbeat. Stay right there. PLEASE!!!

Looks like you have very little choice in the matter. Take the job. If something better turns up, you can always change jobs.
