Cost of living is a bitch. The bitch to end all other bitches, really. You can make $100,000 a year in Wyoming (or some other state practically no one wants to live in) and exist like a fucking king, because the cost of living is so low. Meanwhile, if you make that same $100,000 and try to live in the heart of New York City, you are practically living below the poverty line.
I understand that last statement is an exaggeration and I’m not trying to shit on the chests of the truly impoverished, but $100,000 in NYC does not go a long way. Certainly not as far as it would go in other parts of the country. Surprisingly, even with being the home of Manhattan, the state of New York isn’t the worst state to make a living in in 2016.

Goddammit. It is such a shame the cost of living in Hawaii is so high. A big, fat, depressing shame…
Alright. So I stand corrected. Maybe there are a few states people would want to live in on the “Best” list.
