$20-$25 per hour sounds like a contract position. Otherwise, I would
expect the salary to be stated differently.

Are you the primary bread winner in your family?

Is the job in New York City, Boston, suburbia, or a rural community?
What is your cost of living?

Is insurance and healthcare included?

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Personally, $40k per year for the only job for my family in Connecticut
would be a stretch. It would be better than nothing. I have no idea if
it would be better than unemployment.

And, think of this. Let's say a $50k per year job gets offered to you
three months later, do you dump the $40k job and put-out the employer?
Another thing to consider, about paying people less than they are worth.

1. <nitpick>Diane said $20-$25/hr, not $20.</nitpick>
2. She didn't say it was contract. That would change
3. Many people feed their families on a lot less.

Oh well, I'm not the one out of work. If I were, I would
be evaluating the offer, not laughing at it.
