Who gets paid what? And where?

It ain't in Maine

  There exists an interesting set of tables, charts, graphs and written material about the weekly wages specific to each State.  But, you need to download some free software to read them.  I downloaded the "Tableau Public 8.2" to browse though and found that the map here gives the most information.  I think if you click the image you can read it.
  Go to:  for more information.
  The lower the number the better the wage, or an average of wages, for each state; DC is number 1 because the lobbyist pays our Congress very well, and Mississippi (of course) is last, Maine never trails by much (there is a map for Maine by County on the link).
