"A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart." -Jonathan Swift

There are all sorts of rankings by state, from education to retirement. While everyone wants their own home state to be the best, let’s face the fact that some states are vastly different than others. Zippia, a career website, created a map of the average living wage in your state in order to support two adults and one child. You can probably guess which states had the highest cost of living compared to the least expensive states. Using MIT’s living wage calculator, Zippia has created something very interesting.
