And here is a link that factors in cost of living (several of the 10 lowest paying states aren't so bad when you think about cost of living in the original link) as well as some other factors:

Not at all surprising, Hawai'i is in last place (as usual) and MUCH lower than the state right above them.

Pennsylvania (where I am) is listed as number 10 on the top highest.

It is darn tough to get a teaching position here. Because of the budget most districts aren't offering more than BA, first step (lowest pay). There is also a looming pension crisis caused by the legislature granting the state (commonwealth) and local districts a decade long "vacation" from making payments to the pension plan.

No surprise that my state is #2 for lowest paying.

It used to not be expensive to live here, but the insurance costs have skyrocketed on the coast, thanks to hurricanes. Too many family and friends here to move, but it's tempting sometimes! I do still like it here, but it would be nice to have raises that coincided with cost-of-living increases.
