Although the states are expensive. They have higher wages.

 

The article ranked it based on utilization. Thus states with higher wages ranked lower because likely they also had higher limits.

 

WA and CA have low utilization.


I understand the article is based on utilization per state.

 

I was born in CA and lived in WA for over 20 years, until recently.

 

I don't agree with the higher limits, at least not state wide.  Maybe for some certain groups of people.

I think it is skewed by the cities and more affluent areas. Whereas the states on the list are impacted less by that aspect.

I do agree with that.  I lived in Tacoma which isn't too terribly expensive, much cheaper than Everett.  But Seattle is off the charts.

My state wasn't on there so I guess that's a good thing.
