SALT LAKE CITY – If you’re looking to increase your chances of success, Utah is one of the top places you want to be.
This year our state moves up three spots securing its standing as No. 5 in the best states to make a living.
The study states our cost of living and unemployment rate are very low and workplace conditions are above average.
However, slightly below-average incomes and above-average tax burdens hold take-home pay down a bit.
The rankings are based on things like average salary, cost of living, employment rate and workplace conditions.
Washington took the top spot as the best state for making a living with Texas, Minnesota and Colorado close behind.
The worst state for work is Hawaii followed by New York and Mississippi with lowest ranked working conditions.
