    cost of living versus wages

    just wondering what a good state is as far as cost of living versus wages? Any techs out there working in hawaii like me? I don't know if it's just my company, but we got florida wages and 2 to 3 times the cost of living. I know there is a cost to live here and thats just part of the deal. But we don't have a service tech making over $20 an hour and most of us are nate certifeid. Any body else in hawaii seeing the same thing?

    Flint/Detroit Areas of Michigan. The union wage scales are $30+/hr. The cost of living is super low.

    The auto industry drove wages up when they were strong.

    Problem is... There are no jobs!

    GA?

    How is it in Ga. for wage/cost of living? seems average around here is $18-$21/hr for a few years experience, NATE certified and tech grad.
